Now that we are back from "rainy" Orlando, Fla. and a great VoiCE and Innovate, have you had further thoughts about the soon to release, Rational License Key Administration and Reporting Tool?
It was wonderful to meet so many of you in person at VoiCE and Innovate, and to hear your enthusiasm for this new licence feature. And, rest assured, the important feedback and suggestions you gave at VoiCE and Innovate have already been heard by our development teams. So, keep it coming!
If you walked away with further thoughts and suggestions from the VoiCE presentation or the Innovate Labs pedestal on the Rational License Key Administration and Reporting tool, please don't hesitate to reach out to me: email@example.com Or, you can leave your thoughts, here, as a comment response to this blog post.
If you did not attend VoiCE or Innovate, and have questions about the soon to release Rational License Key Administration and Reporting tool, you too should feel free to reach out to me, or contact your IBM Rational sales lead about the tool. If you are under an NDA, we can show you what was presented at Voice and Innovate prior to release.
Thanks, and I look forward to our continued collaboration on the new Rational License Key Administration and Reporting tool.
