Check out Ralph Schoon's blog post below for some great information as it relates to Rational Team Concert Extensions Workshop and RTC 6.0rc1
Running the RTC Extensions Workshop With RTC 6.0 - Ralph ran a test to find out if the Rational Team Concert Extensions Workshop still works with RTC 6.0 using the RC1 build. This is what he found. The RTC extensions workshop still runs with RTC 6.0 – at least the RC1 build – but you have to increase the memory available for the JUnit test to setup the development time repository database.

In this two part series, Bruce Powel Douglass, Ph.D., Chief Evangelist, IBM Analytics discuses security as it relates to the new world of connected devices and the issues that go along with such embedded connectivity.
Securing the Internet of Things. Part 1 – Security in a world of connected devices: It's a Brave New World. 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 Intent 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]

Learn the main guidelines to build an automated development and testing framework using scripts. In the following blog post, Aya Elgebeely (Application Developer, IBM) highlights how using scripts to automate your development workflow can have a magical effect on your work quality and performance:
Streamline development efforts with scripts- There are quite a few steps to set up an environment or modify and build a substantial amount of files. If you use scripts, one command can do all the work at once. That's a big difference (and savings in time and energy) from doing the steps one-by-one. This gives you the time to focus on the important and innovative tasks and let the script do the mundane tasks.
With scripts you can combine various technologies under one custom framework. As if you are playing with Lego parts; scripts are the connectors between the different building blocks of your build and test environment. With scripting capabilities the intended workflow runs automatically with minimal user intervention.

Deep Dive Data Warehouse Reporting using the Jazz Reporting Service- The Jazz Reporting Service is the new reporting solution from IBM Rational Software developed on top of the Jazz integration platform and is intended to support the authoring of custom reports for the Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution. A previous articles around Jazz Reporting Service covered reporting using the build in query builder [Haumer 2014], which allows end users to create their own reports almost right away with simple drag-and-drop gestures and selections. Another article [Shaw 2014] went one step further and demonstrated how to use theStructured Query Language (SQL) editor to modify and refine the underlying SQL statement that were generated by the query builder introducing some more advanced features.
