Test and simulate rules using WebSphere ILOG Business Rules Management System
Managers responsible for policy making in decision-rich enterprises have benefited enormously from information technology. But as the pace of change has increased, and the reach of automation has been extended, traditional software applications have been unable to deliver the flexibility and agility required by most businesses.
A business rule management system (BRMS) enables organizational policies – and the operational decisions associated with those policies – to be defined, deployed, monitored and maintained separately from core application code. By externalizing business rules and providing tools to manage them, a BRMS allows business experts to define and maintain the decisions that guide systems behavior, reducing the amount of time and effort required to update production systems, and increasing the organization’s ability to respond to changes in the business environment.
BRMS solutions automate policies in custom and composite business applications. They lower application maintenance costs, facilitate more accurate and consistent business policy implementation across applications, and improve collaboration between your business and IT departments.
In this demo, learn how WebSphere ILOG Business Rules Management System allows organizations to easily adapt business rules while ensuring compliance with policy requirements and analyzing the business impact of changes against key performance indicators. This demo uses an insurance industry scenario to show how the WebSphere ILOG BRMS allows business users to easily handle testing and simulation of rule changes from within a collaborative, Web-based environment.

Rational Build Forge enables high-performance builds and agile software development. Its adaptiveness helps development teams standardize repetitive tasks, manage compliance mandates, and share information. It automates and accelerates software assembly and delivery processes and streamlines build management.
This blog we will discuss Ant files and log filters. In IBM Rational Build Forge log filters specify success criteria for a step using regular expression matching.
This demo utilizes an Ant file. A common use case for log filters is the execution of commands regarding Ant files, because these commands do not always return useful exit codes. This demo shows the following tasks: creating a log filter, using a log filter in a project, and setting a project to continue on fail.

Going green is more than a buzz word, it influences so much of what is important today. Both operational costs and capital costs are at stake. You have an obligation to reduce the money you spend and the risk that energy poses to your business. You have a responsibility to reduce energy consumption. Watch this demo to see how IBM® Tivoli® software can help correlate your power distribution infrastructure with your IT service management infrastructure.

IBM® Rational® Rhapsody® Architect for Software provides software development environment for real time and embedded software development based on a UML/SysML.
Embedded software developers can leverage an integrated software development environment for C, C++, Java or C# code that helps improve application consistency through UML based modeling to visualize and document the design of embedded and real time applications.
* Visualize architecture and design with industry standard UML or SysML
* Generate C, C++, Java or C# code frames
* Reverse engineer C, C++, Java or C# code for visualization and documentation
* Integration within Eclipse development environment for integrated code, model and debugging
* Maintain consistency of architecture, design, code and documentation automatically
* Author AUTOSAR 4.0 compliant automotive applications
* Leverage MARTE profile for architecting multi core applications
* Trace requirements to design to deliver the right product to market
* Collaborate using model-based differencing and merging features, including an integration with
the Jazz- based IBM® Rational® Team Concert solution
* Rational Rhapsody Architect for Software 7.5.3 adds support for Rational Rhapsody
TestConductor Add On to apply testing to code visualized
Check out the demo
This demonstration shows how to develop embedded software using the Rational Rhapsody Architect for Software development environment. The Rational Rhapsody development environment enables developers to visually capture their applications to automate manual coding tasks and communicate their designs. Learn how to import existing C++ code and synchronize it with a UML model, automatically create diagrams to understand the relationships in the code, and then document the design for external reports.
The workflow integration with Eclipse is illustrated by using Rational Rhapsody Architect for Software to turn the code into a simple 'ping pong' console game. It illustrates how, using code centric settings, dynamic synchronization with the code can be achieved, enabling the user to make updates in either the model or the code while still preserving the existing layout and structure. This enables developers to more easily adopt modeling on existing code projects or where preservation of code layout is critical to success.

It's all part of creating a smarter planet. Here is the Demo.
For most developers, the use of Build Forge has been confined to using the management console, or the graphical user interface (GUI). Creating and using Rational Build Forge libraries can be a smart programming practice and it is easy in Build Forge. Libraries are useful for extracting repeated code so that it does not have to be re-entered as a step or series of steps in each project; the project can simply utilize the library. Libraries differ from projects only in that they do not use a selector.
Build Forge can also be connected through a client and it can integrate with IBM® Rational® Jazz™ technology-based software, too. When teams need to create or integrate their custom build and test solutions with Build Forge, application programming interfaces (APIs), known as Build Forge clients and provided by Build Forge, play an important role. The client gives you a simple and robust way to add, update, modify, and interact with the Build Forge objects in the same manner that the management console does.
Check out this demo that shows how to create a library, copy a project, inline a basic library and then use it as part of a simple pass/fail chain.
