CLM configuration management: Adoption guidance and practices - After you determine whether your organization would benefit from configuration management, you need to evaluate your existing processes and determine how they will change to reflect the new concepts and operations. This article guides you through important considerations for adopting configuration management. See the related articles for additional details about practices and decisions points.
CLM configuration management: Defining your component strategy - Components typically represent physical or logical subdivisions of your product or system. A
CLM configuration management: Patterns for stream usage - This article introduces several patterns of stream usage, or stream strategies, which are described in more detail in additional linked articles. You should already be familiar with the configuration management capabilities, and have decided to investigate further. For the introduction to this series, see Adoption guidance and practices. As part of planning your adoption of configuration management you need to determine your stream strategy.
CLM configuration management: Single stream strategy - Use the single stream pattern for basic change management that’s only in a single domain application (that is, requirements or tests or designs). Typically you use this pattern with the Requirements Management (RM) or Design Management (DM) appl
CLM configuration management: Multistream variant strategy - This article discusses patterns of stream usage for situations where multiple variants of lifecycle artifacts need to be maintained in parallel for each of several releases. This is a common need of product-centric organizations. These and other patterns – including several that these patterns build on – are introduced in the companion Patterns for stream usage article. Read about these base patterns before you read this article. You’ll also find links there to the other stream pattern articles in this series.
CLM configuration management: Multistream concurrent release development strategy - This article explores patterns of stream usage for situations where you work on multiple releases of a product concurrently. Many organizations find these patterns useful on their own. These patterns also form the basis of the more complex multistream variant patterns, as explained in the Multistream variant strategy article. Many patterns are introduced in the companion Patterns for stream usage article. That article in turn points to the other stream details articles in this series. We suggest you read about the more basic patterns, such as the single stream strategy, before you read the current article. The patterns we present here are relatively complex. If an opportunity to “go simpler” presents itself, even for a single component, we encourage you to do so. For example, if you can build and maintain a reusable component of regulatory requirements using a single-stream pattern, rather than one of the multistream patterns, by all means use the simpler pattern.

Rational Team Concert: External content repositories - Starting in version 6.0.5, Rational Team Concert supports external content repositories. This feature enables Rational Team Concert to store large source control management (SCM) files in an external content repository instead of the server database. An external content repository can be a directory on the Rational Team Concert server file system, or a WebDAV-compliant artifact repository server such as Artifactory.
The external content repository is configured by an administrator, is completely transparent to users, and is fully compatible with older clients. [Read more....]

We all know that knowledge assets are an invaluable resource for any support organization. On a daily basis, our support engineers gleam a wealth of insights from their problem-solving investigations. From those insights, they have taken the necessary steps to publish that knowledge to ensure that the solutions are made available for all our clients.
As we wrap up the 3rd quarter of this year we thought it would be a good time to post an updated list of our top technotes. Below we’ve compiled a list of our 20 most used troubleshooting technotes for our Continuous Engineering, Maximo and TRIRIGA products. We hope that highlighting them here will help to improve the troubleshooting process for you.
Would you like to be directly involved in efforts to improve our products? Would you like the ability to vote on improvements that you have a vested interest in seeing implemented? Well you can do just that from the IBM RFE Community. As part of the community you can collaborate with IBM development teams and other product users through your ability to search, view, comment on, submit, and track product requests.
