Many developers are familiar with IBM's Configuration Management Version Control (CMVC) system. Some might question whether it's worthwhile to migrate to a newer lifecycle management platform. While it is possible to use CMVC to coordinate tasks and workflow throughout the development cycle, CMVC's relatively simple two-tier architecture lacks many of the features of Rational Team Concert. In addition to the basic version control and management features in CMVC, Rational Team Concert offers continuous builds, iteration planning, and process templates, which make it easy to configure and manage various work item types and workflows.
