RAS was initially developed by the RAS consortium 2001-2003
RAS was adopted at the St. Louis OMG meetings, April 2004
The RAS FTF submitted its Final report to the OMG in March 2005
RAS FTF Final report accepted and final voting completed by OMG in June 2005
So, next thing to ponder on is the need for RAS. RAS is needed for a common representation of assets to enable the transfer, sharing, and management of software assets. RAS provides the organization and structure of information and artifacts for an asset. Lets see in a later posting, on asset management/governance provided in the form of asset repositories, which is critical in SOA implementations.

Couple of days back, we've shipped WebSphere Cast Iron fixpack 184.108.40.206. This highly recommended fix pack in 6.1.x level, contains couple of important security fixes, so you may want to review them and upgrade to this level. This time in the announcement, we've added a separate tab for Download links, for various form factors, rather than having them in the main announcement.

The prestigious 95th Indian Science Congress is being hosted by Andhra University, Visakhapatnam from Jan 3 to Jan 7, with Knowledge based society using environmentmentally sustainable science and technology as the theme. Honourable Prime Minister of India Dr Manmohan Singh will be inaugrating it on Jan 3 and the main venue is the sprawling grounds in the engineering college, where I used to play cricket, when I was pursing my BE in AU.
Being CRM (Campus Relations Manager) from IBM to AU, I also work for IBM's participation in various technical events happening in the campus and establish a long standing relation. IBM conducted a Technology Day during Aug 2007 at the engineering college campus, which I've posted earlier here. Dr C Mohan, IBM Fellow and IBM India Chief Scientist is participating at this event by being part of a panel discussion and giving a talk on Women in Technology hosted by Dept of Science and Technology, Govt of India. I'll post more on the happenings in my later postings here and I'm looking forward to visit my good old campus this weekend.
Its a great feeling, that I'm the first IBMer from IBM India, to blog at devWorks. Since the past 6 months or so, I've been blogging internally, sharing my Open Experience (IBM only). I'd like to thank the devWorks blogging team for getting it ready within a short time and gifting this on my birthday. Yes, today is my birthday and I was recollecting some of the software projects/initiatives celebrating their birthday in this month. Some of which I could gather are:
Continuing further on my two earlier postings on Software Assets and Asset standard, this posting introduces Rational Asset Manager (RAM), which GA'd last week. RAM can be viewed more as a development time asset repository, storing all the development related assets/artifacts. You can get more resources on RAM at developerWorks here and a good whitepaper on the Federated Metadata management and also on RAM, WSRR integration.
Further to my posting on FOSS.IN, which drew some 4500+ visitors this time, I've got the pic of IBM's stall at the event. The stall set up to educate visitors on IBM's participation/contribution to some of the open source projects including Linux, Apache Geronimo.
One of my team-mate, in the stall was present to educate visitors on WAS CE.
Around 500 visited the stall eager to know more about WAS CE and IBM's contribution towards Apache Geronimo. Several engineering students as well as different companies enquired about more assistance/resources to build skills on WAS CE.
It was definitely a common platform to showcase IBM's
strength in Open Source. I guess Open standards, Open source in a way open minds to open opportunities, a little modification of Bob Sutor's blog title.[Read More]
