Getting started roadmap for Rational Team Concert- Article author: Dejan Custic, Persistent Systems Ltd. Rational Team Concert (RTC) is a collaborative tool that helps software development teams organize work and monitor progress in an agile, continuous delivery environment. Continuous delivery is about delivering software frequently. It focuses on speeding up the deployment pipeline – from source code to customer-executable code. Increasing delivery speed often necessitates increasing agility – the need to make changes to code (and to designs) frequently either to correct design faults or to adjust to changing customer demands. With the following features, RTC assists teams to be agile and to deliver continuously. Note: The resources listed on this page were created for a specific release, but also apply to later releases.

When a new project is started the majority of the time business needs (or requirements) are captured and defined through text. Rational DOORS Next Generation provides a complete Web based environment for documenting rich text project information providing your team all the typical controls that you would expect in a word processor but with the added benefit of a shared team experience. Rational DOORS Next Generation gives your team members a great way to capture their information using standard templates and a project wide glossary to help unify development teams around a common vocabulary.
Features – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Features to drive your project forward
Capture and Organize Requirements – Overview – Rational Doors Next Generation: Business needs come in many different forms, formats and language. Bringing them all together in a single place, removing redundancy, and connecting interrelated content is the first step to requirements definition and management. Rational DOORS Next Generation is IBM’s next generation Web based team environment to capture your business needs, diagrams, use cases, design, storyboards, and other critical project information that will help drive your business.
Collaboration and Review – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Each stakeholder in a project may be interested in different information (e.g. defect backlog, current tasks, or release schedule). Rational DOORS Next Generation allows you to create custom a dashboard with multiple pages, each displaying a customizable view, of a given project, to quickly investigate the desired information at any time. Each page contains custom viewlets, each with a specific purpose.
Visually Define – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Do you or your employees spend too much time wondering if all necessary business requirements were considered in order to complete a task? Are you sure you didn’t miss anything? It can be difficult to keep every team member on the same page with the complex and ever-evolving business processes that are necessary for fast-moving companies to stay ahead of the competition.
Baseline and Audit History – Rational DOORS Next Generation: As a new project is started and progresses forward many of requirements you define and capture will change, be added to, or sometimes removed through the course of development. Rational DOORS Next Generation provides the functionality to help track requirements information change so that you can understand what has taken place throughout that process.
Reports – Rational DOORS Next Generation: The requirement metrics provide an analytics view of the data. They represent processed data and are based on the operational data available from the repository, which is loaded into the data warehouse and then aggregated into measures based on some interpretation. Measures can be counts or sums of numeric data, such as the sum of all weight points of test case execution records. They allow the user to evaluate, report on and to improve the project performance.
Capture Administration – Rational DOORS Next Generation: IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation shares administration services with all applications that are on the same Jazz Team Server. Those applications provide capabilities for the activities that span a project’s lifecycle, such as quality management and change and configuration management. Because administration services are shared with the applications on one Jazz Team Server, teams save time and effort. The shared administration services include services for projects areas, users, and licensing.
Traceability – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Capturing your stakeholder and user requirements in Rational DOORS Next Generation is only the first step in realizing your project. As your project progresses and evolves, these initial requirements give rise to other requirements which elaborate, satisfy, and verify them. The result is a web of interdependent artifacts and relationships which represent the nature of the dependencies between these artifacts. Navigating and understanding this web of information is critical to the success of your project.
