5 minutes of smart: Tracing project requirements - By using an automated tool to facilitate tracing project requirements (in this case, Rational DOORS Next Generation), you can take charge and make managing project requirements a smooth, continuous process.
5 minutes of smart: How to link requirements to development artifacts - An important initial task to successfully manage requirements in a development project includes linking requirements and artifacts. Choosing the correct link type is key. Learn about links types in a typical RM tool such as Rational DOORS Next Generation. You can also experiment with the DOORSng tool in a 60-day free trial.
You can expand your tracing skills for free. IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation, the automated requirements management platform, makes following the links between a requirement and its origins, a requirement and other requirements, or a requirements and other artifacts, much easier. As an experiment, sign up for the fully functional 60-day free trial of DOORS Next Generation and re-manage a project you've already finished for comparison, create a new sample project to manage, or start building requirements management for a project you're about to begin for a client.

Rational DOORS Next Generation now lets you create client extensions. Extensions are complete web applications that run inside a dedicated area of the DOORS user interface, allowing users to embed custom web content. IBM Bluemix provides a powerful and easy-to-use platform for hosting web applications and extensions.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 2 - In this tutorial, the second of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to the popular note-taking software Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 3 - In this tutorial, the last of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to the popular note-taking software Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
In this 3-part series, you've seen how to build an integration with Evernote. We started with the API and moved on to building a standalone Node.js web application that allows users to browse their Evernote data. Then you saw how to adapt this web app into a DOORS Next Generation extension. I hope that this example has given you a taste of what can be achieved with DOORS Next client extensions and a sense of how easy it is to build and deploy your own extensions using Bluemix.
Free trial: Try Rational DOORS Next Generation free for 90 days. Let this platform for global team collaboration help you manage requirements more effectively and share common administration of users, servers, and projects.

IBM has been delivering Internet Of Things solutions for a Smarter Planet even before the campaign launch in 2008
Check out this Introduction to the IBM IoT Foundation on Slidshare:
I am new to the IBM TRIRIGA Support organization, working as a Level 2 Support Engineer. It has been my observation when reviewing PMR's that there is a lot of time spent going back and forth between the customer and the support engineer. It seems to me that this is due, in part, because not enough information was initially provided. Many times I have seen, in a PMR, that the customer is getting some error. Sometimes they just say they are getting an error or they may report the specific error with no information about how it happened, what version they were using or what they were doing. Many times there are vague steps with our client thinking that TRIRIGA engineers should know what they are trying to do.
I wanted to share what happens in support so that clients might understand why information about a problem is so important. When support receives a PMR we try to reproduce the issue based on the information given to us. If we are not given enough information, we are forced to collect it by making requests that can take days or even weeks to accomplish. Time zones play a role where each email can take a full day to get to the right people and get a response. In some cases, if we are provided with not enough information we may fail to replicate the problem which does not mean it is not an issue, it just means we may have replicated incorrectly because we are missing information or there are configurations or customized workflows that we do not have. There could be something in the way that the customer is doing something versus how the support engineer is doing something, because with software, there can be more than one way of doing something. If we need to get additional information it just takes that much more time.
We recognize that your time is valuable and it can be frustrating going back and forth to get the necessary information to reproduce an issue. What would help us in IBM TRIRIGA Support, is when entering a PMR, clients provide detailed step by step instructions as if you were asking your non tech-savy grandmother to reproduce. It may sound corny but it really is all in the details. As I mentioned, there could be more than one way to do something and left to our own devices, we might not do it the same way as you (the customer), so the more details the better.
If you have ever cooked and followed a recipe you are following steps. You might think of that approach for entering your steps to reproduce an issue.
Your time is valuable and we recognize that. The more detailed you are with your initial entry on the PMR, the less time spent going back and forth trying to get the steps and more time can be spent on reproducing and resolving your issue.
Remember, we do have a document we often call a “Must Gather” or “Information To Collect” document for TRIRIGA PMRs. You should always submit this when you open a PMR. You can generally fill it out and save it so you always have it handy to attach to PMRs, just remember to update it when something changes. See it here:

In this two-part blog series, Bruce Powel Douglass, Ph.D.(Chief Evangelist, IBM Analytics) discusses security in the Internet of Things world, both in terms of the connection and well as the devices themselves.
Securing the Internet of Things. Part 1 – Security in a world of connected devices: Time was when smart embedded devices needed little or no security. They were, for the vast majority, disconnected devices that performed simple dedicated functions. Now, as we hear ever more about the Internet of Things (IoT), it seems everything is connected over the web. Washing machines are connected over the web. This allows unprecedented capabilities for both consumers to connect and manage their lives and for vendors to improve services, monitor usage patterns, deliver updates, and address emerging markets. It is not, however, without risk. [Read more]
Securing the Internet of Things. Part 2 - Securing the ‘Things’ of the IoT: In my last post I discussed the overall challenges of securing the Internet of Things. In this post I focus primarily on the "Things" of the Internet of Things. Certainly securing the cloud end is important as well, but there has always been far more emphasis on cloud security than on device security. I think there are a number of essential aspects of a development environment for designing secure systems [Read more]
