Pragmatic Architecture, DevOps, and Cloud Computing
Rational Team Concert (RTC) V5.0 was officially announced at the Innovate conference in Orlando (June 1-5). During this week, IBM Devops Services and Bluemix were intensively showcased to demonstrate how quick and easy it is tyo create an application on the cloud, for the cloud.
One of the new capabilities in RTC 5.0 is the out-of-the-box integration with Git. This is nice because in an organization, not everyone will develop on the cloud with IBM DevOps Services (IDS). We can imagine heterogeneous environments. Some teams may work directly in the DevOps Services web IDE, deploying applications on Bluemix. Other teams may leverage an existing RTC environment, doing their development from Eclipse IDEs. Whatever you decide, RTC and IDS integrate smoothly with different Git environments.
So you choose the configuration that work best for you. Whether you favor cloud computing or more traditional development, you can rely on you source code on Git and leverage RTC / DevOps Services to plan and deliver your application quickly.

I don't like keynotes in IT conferences. Why? Because most of time, someone with no technical background comes to entertain people during a long (too long) speech. It can be funny. Most of the time, it is not. The speaker is usually famous for something she/he did in the past. Most of the time, it is absolutely not related with IT. It's like a stand-up comedy show. But I don't attend IT conferences to be entertained. I am a geek. I want to see IT stuff.
At the IBM Innovate conference, the keynote on Day 1 was different. So I must say I was wrong. Keynotes can be good. During this one, they did a live demo of IBM DevOps capabilities. They showed live, on stage, how you can discover a defect on a mobile application, create a bug (MQA, shake it baby), fix the code on the cloud (web IDE of DevOps Services), deliver the change and trigger the build and deploy (DevOps Services again).
Create defect --> Code --> Deliver --> Build --> Deploy --> Verify
Part 2 of the demo also showed how the mobile application on the Cloud can integrate with the enterprise data. The mobile app uses a virtualized service first, and then real data from the on-premise application on System Z.
A really nice demo, clear, simple. I hope I will be wrong again for future keynotes. Enough nonsense technical talks. Let's accepts that we are geeks.
Take a look at the live demo HERE. Skip the first 20 minutes (starts at 22:20 mark), and enjoy!
