Have you ever wanted access to what the development team is planning for the future, along with the ability to provide direct feedback on each item within a planned release? With Tivoli's shift towards transparent development, now you can. Transparent Development is the ongoing, open engagement between IBM development and our users on the development of our products. The emphasis is on being open and transparent about our direction and providing you with open access to key release content, including:
- Release plans and details about the progress of the release
- Beta code downloads
- Product roadmaps (view the IBM SmartCloud Application Performance Management roadmap)
- Early designs
- Sprint demos
- Best practices and discussion around already generally available releases
IBM SmartCloud Application Performance Management is one of the first products to adopt transparent development within Tivoli. Through the new project dashboard on Service Management Connect, you can view the current release plan and provide direct feedback on what the team is developing. All you need is a developerWorks ID and password to access the release plan, and to provide your feedback.
