IBM Champions: Innovate Day 2
Another day of heavy IBM Champion activity at IBM Innovate. The pinnacle was the Champion reception hosted by Gina Poole and other IBM executives where a number of Champions were presented their Blue Galaxy ‘Rock Star’ poster calling out their significant contribution. Take a look at this example from @alvesqualiti:
We also captured a number of Champions on film, the results of which will be filtering through shortly.
Want to know where you can find Champions today? Take a look at this roster of speaking sessions:
BDPLY-1874 Broadcast Music, Inc. - Release Automation Rockstars!
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM Asia 1
Broadcast Music Inc transformed themselves from no agile process to a full agile approach within a few months across their multiple development teams including Portal, SOA and Integration, and targeting a range of development runtime platforms.As their development teams reached higher productivity, the next step was to help releases keep up with this increased development pace by automating the build and deploy process in Rational Team Concert.After this the needs of the Ops team were met by moving this automation into a more manageable and robust build engine - Rational Build Forge. Most recently the Ops team has also started automating the provision of new development runtime environments using the Rational Automation Framework.Come hear how the BMI teams have become release rockstars by incrementally rolling out the Rational automation tools to remove manual inefficiencies and increase quality.

SZ-1753 : Software Archaeology with Rational Developer for System z and Rational Asset Analyzer - Discovering What You've Forgotten, Knowing What You'll Inherit
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM Australia 2
So you've just inherited several COBOL programs from a newly retired co-worker. These programs are huge, and you have only a slight idea what they do and what they touch. How do you go about discovering how they work? This is where IBM RDz and RAA can help you understand what your source does, what it affects, and what risks lie in changing those systems. Join the session to uncover your hidden treasure!

RTES-1555 Model-Based Testing of Complex Hybrid Aerospace Systems
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM Oceanic 5
The development and quality assurance of complex, hybrid aerospace systems lead to new challenges. One of the most important enablers to assure the requested quality of embedded systems is the application of powerful V&V technologies accompanying the embedded systems development process. Such V&V technologies increase the degree of automation in the testing process, the probability to uncover more errors and the reuse of engineering artifacts throughout the different engineering phases. Model-based testing (MBT) techniques deal with the efficient and automated generation of test infrastructures and test cases (ATG) from different kinds of models. MBT promises higher quality and conformance to the respective functional safety and quality standards at reduced costs through increased coverage and increased automation of the testing process. This presentation provides feedback from applying model-based testing, including ATG in an industrial environment, in the aerospace domain.

RM-2212 DOORS Next Generation: First Impressions and Key Comparisons (to IBM Rational DOORS)
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Northern A3
Having managed IBM Rational DOORS for over 10 years and written too many lines of DXL to count, Alex offers his take on DOORS Next Generation including examples of DOORS best practices and how they translate into the DOORS Next Generation product. The focus is on DOORS Next Generation and includes both the user experience and the database manager. Request a meeting with this client speaker at Innovate through the Client Connections program.

AGL-1797 Agile Everywhere: An Organisation-Wide Adoption
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Southern I
Agile is mainstream and is used to deliver simple web applications, enterprise multiplatform applications, and embedded systems. Organizations use agile because it reduces cost and risk, improves quality, and enhances customer satisfaction. IBM Rational agile solutions help organizations quickly and effectively adopt and scale a Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) approach by providing tooling and training for the teams. In this session, hear from IBM Rational Champions Julian and Carson about their experiences when transforming organizations to have agility @ scale to support large and distributed teams and effectively meet compliance mandates; integrated tooling to plan, build, and deliver agile projects; an open and flexible delivery platform supporting existing commercial and open source tools; and training, coaching, and mentoring solutions to support the change.
LM-1542 Case Study: Brazilian Government. Integrating CLM and Open Source Tools Using OSLC
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Southern V
Aiming to enhance fiscal transparency and quality control of public spending, the Department of Finance - SEFAZ Pernambuco, the government organization responsible for the administration of the taxes that fall under the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, decided to implement Rational capabilities. We will share lessons learned and how these capabilities improved the SEFAZ-PE software development lifecycle, previously based on documents and spreadsheets with no traceability. Now we have increased control and visibility, especially the review and inspection of the artifacts process. The project's main challenge was the integration of Rational Requirements Composer and Rational Quality Manager to the issue manager (change management open source tool), thus making an integrated, optimized, and collaborative software development lifecycle. This was only possible through OSLC.

RTES-1697 Global Collaboration with Automotive Partners in RTC in the Cloud
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 4:15 PM - 5:45 PM Oceanic 5
The complexities of the automotive industry have driven development from a single organization to a collaborative development between multiple vendors. The traditional development pattern of a single development center with a centralized corporate data center providing local collaboration no longer meets the needs. Organizations are driven to both provide open access to tools while respecting the intellectual property concerns of their customers and their collaborators. This session discusses how the Panasonic team provides a common platform for users, internal and external, to perform project collaboration through CloudOne. Within Rational Team Concert, the access permissions are enforced via process supports, extensions and process templates delivered from the Sodius team to protect IP and provide efficiency enablement. From this platform, the Panasonic team manages workflow, external code delivery, issue management and the latest build/release support with their ecosystem.
