Are you doing your semi-annual planning for upgrading hardware and want to know if you need to also update any software releases?
Are you rolling out a solution with different products and wanting to know whether they can all be deployed on a common platform or will they all work with a common database or browser?
We have the solution that should help you answer these questions and more:
Software Product Compatibility Reports (SPCR) is an innovative tool designed to allow customers to easily generate custom reports about which products can run on a specific operating system, which software needs specific prerequisite versions, what are compatible IBM software combinations, what are product end-of-service dates and what languages are my product translated in? The Software Product Compatibility Reports are located on the IBM support portal and improves time to value by eliminating the need to search through individual product documentation or contact IBM support for answers like “do you run on”, “do you work with”, “are you translated in” and “are you still supporting”.
For a sample scenario of how to use the reports to improve your time to value, a step by step example is available in the document posted here.
The IBM SWG Support team has a video which demonstrates how to use the Software Product Compatibility Reports. This video is also on YouTube, and the IEA (IBM Education Assistant).
The tool is available for use here http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/prodguid/v1r0/clarity/index.html
