Everyday over 50,000 airplanes are guided safely through the air. The new air traffic control teams are becoming digitally savvy using more high tech software and tools to do their job more efficiently for the safety of all of us.
The air traffic control team works much like a software development team, where there are many defined roles, all very important to complete the mission.
For example, different types of air flight controllers take control of the flight throughout the planes journey to it's destination, from departure gate to arrival gate. (Think of the plane as an application) It is a very complex process just like the software development process.
Clearing each flight from the gate to the runway involves several steps and teams of people working together. The pilot calls for clearance and will receive clearance from the ground controller, who will take the pilot to the appropriate runway and will put the plane in line for take off. The ground controller will also manage any factors affecting the flight such as weather.
The local controller will take the aircraft and issue the "take off clearance", to get the pilot airborne. Once the aircraft is airborne, the tower control contacts departure control and the flight is handed off to Tracon, who's job it is to get the plane through all the other aircraft in the area, track the plane to it's flight cruising altitude, and onto it's destination. Then a regional air route center then takes control.
Oh by the way, there are project manager types managing all this. Sound familiar?
IBM Software tools serve as an air traffic control system for IT. Development teams like air traffic controllers need to use the most up to date efficient tools and team tools to provide security and safety. We all need to create a smarter planet in everything we do. As software developers there are some awesome development tools available to help us create this smarter planet through software. We need to work efficiently and smarter in our global software development teams, as we hand code over from one team to the other. The key thing is communication, just like the flight controllers. Using development tools that help us communicate to our team members better, will help us develop better quality software in less time.
Check out these demos on how teams can use development tools to improve the communication through the development process:
Change management with IBM Rational ClearQuest and ClearCase, Part 1
This demo shows you how to integrate IBM® Rational® ClearQuest® and ClearCase® into a integrated change management solution. The deployed Web banking application is tested for defects. Once the test manager discovers the defect, the manager walks through the submission process. The defect is reviewed and assigned to a developer (Alex in the demo) by the project manager. Once the defect is assigned to the developer, he works to resolve the defect utilizing IBM Rational Application Developer, ClearQuest, and ClearCase. This is the first of a two part demo series. Demo
Change management with IBM Rational ClearQuest and ClearCase, Part 2
This demo continues where part 1 left off. It follows the developer (Alex) as he works on resolving the defect submitted to him. Alex uses IBM Rational Application Developer with plug-ins for ClearQuest and ClearCase. First, you'll see Alex's to-do list that contains submitted high severity defects assigned to him. Next, Alex connects to the ClearCase server and changes the code to correct the defect. Then Alex verifies his changes by running the application within his IDE. Finally, Alex checks in his changes and transition the state of the defect from open to resolved using ClearQuest. This is the second of a two part demo series. Demo

This just out! Spread the word and check out the Rational Focal Point Demo. It's all part of creating a smarter planet through software!
IBM technology drives the Chevrolet Volt
With help from Rational, General Motors is transforming its organization and the way it develops and delivers cars.
GM engineers used Rational solutions to develop critical electronic controls for the Volt's innovative battery system, electric drive unit, and cabin electronics. The vehicle's unique propulsion system required the design of an unprecedented "system of systems," centered on software that seamlessly integrates the Volt's battery pack with its electric drive system. IBM Rational software solutions were also used to help GM engineers model the interactions of the Volt's embedded systems, helping to increase the quality and efficiency.
To promote collaboration between global engineering teams, IBM is helping GM standardize their vehicle design on fewer software tools and a common design process, as well as helping them manage change throughout the product development process.
The result of GM's investment in solutions from IBM Rational? Accelerated response to consumer demands and compression of the time it takes to develop a new vehicle, from the auto industry average of five to 10 years, or longer, to 29 months!

IBM Cognos Analytic Applications - Adaptive Application Framework Version 8.4: Part 2 Create a new dimension from a non-ERP data source
A couple of weeks ago I kicked off a blog on Cognos's Analytic Applications - Adaptive Application Framework Version 8.4 product. Here is part 2, that discusses Creating a new dimension from a non-ERP data source.
Let's review what we discussed last time and then get into the next demo:
IBM Cognos Analytic Applications deliver ready-made or packaged analytics using a
common business model that assesses performance of specific functional domains,
which include finance, customer, supply chain and workforce. The applications help
our customers gain insight into their performance faster and far more cost-effectively
than if they were to build it themselves. In addition, with a common business model for
analysis, customers can extend the point of analysis through shared KPI’s that either
deepen or extend their assessment of performance, either departmentally or
The Congos Adaptive Application Framework (AAF), meanwhile, is the application’s
management model backbone, and allows organizations to adapt, or modify
reporting and analysis through a configurable process completed via a single touch
point. The approach uses a drag and drop GUI to automate and streamline the
management and implementation of changes, as well as seamlessly synchronize
the generation of core components of the application’s pre-built sourcings,
warehouse, semantic and reporting layer.
The IBM Cognos Adaptive Application Framework (AAF) lets you design a Warehouse
model, define the ETL, and create a Framework Manager model for reporting purposes.
This demo goes through the steps required to create a new Warehouse Dimension that
is sourced from a non-ERP or custom data source.

If you think how small our world is and how enormous the task is to create a smarter planet, we really have to be smart about creating a smarter planet.
There is so much data that could be collected to help us understand the world better, in terms of health, trends in the environment, population growth and so on. For example, If all the doctors working on a cure for cancer had access to all the same information, those great minds could collectively work smarter and faster, and might just find a cure in our lifetime. But to help those doctors, the IT professionals need to create the software, that will provide the infrastructure, to collect and connect all the data.
To get an idea of just some surface data, that could go so much deeper, check out the

"Fly by the seat of your pants" is an early aviation term when aircraft had few navigation aids and flying was accomplished by means of the pilot's judgment.
The term emerged in the 1930s and was first widely used in reports of Douglas Corrigan's flight from the USA to Ireland in 1938.
That flight was reported in many US newspapers of the day 'Corrigan Flies By The Seat Of His Pants',
We all know that we can't fly by the seat of our pants in software development. There are so many tools today that help us make smarter software faster.
From use case development all the way to modeling, solution analysis, design activities and project management. And thank goodness that aircraft
now have the navigation tools to fly more safely.
Check out these tools to help develop software smarter!
