Many of you (our CLM and Insight clients) have requested this information and we are now pleased to announce the CLM jazz.net Information Center contains great detailed information about the Reporting Data Dictionaries data model, thanks to great collaborative efforts between our clients, support, development, and information developers! So, today we can announce that we've published the first iteration of these documentation improvements at:
Here's a quick excerpt to really whet your appetite....
And while you're at it, don't miss Seth Packham's blog post covering "More CLM 2012 beta videos: Clustering, installation, scriptable setup, express setup, process editing and more" on the Jazz.net blog!

Last week saw the release of version 6.0 for a few different products... here's three blog posts from the Jazz team blog covering what's new in DOORS Next generation, Rational Quality Manager, and Reporting for Collaborative Lifecycle Management!
What’s new in DOORS Next Generation 6.0? - This release could well be introducing the most fundamental function into a requirements management tool since RM systems began. While we continue our drive with usability and productivity we are also providing support for requirements configuration management, built from the ground up as part of the native tool, rather than simply integrating to an external CM system.

What’s new in Rational Quality Manager 6.0? - IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM) 6.0 brings both incremental improvements over v5 and a completely new dimension to managing test artifacts. On the incremental improvements front, the team has done a great job to continue to work closely with our customers to further improve the user experience on specific areas such as dashboard widgets or collaboration. At the same time, v6.0 introduces the support of configuration management for test artifacts, linked to other domains such as requirements or design, and contributing to the notion of global configurations across our Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution. This version marks the beginning of a completely new set of capabilities that empower users to do parallel development and test, and to reuse artifacts in an effective way. [Read more]
What’s new in Reporting for Collaborative Lifecycle Management 6.0 - It’s been an exciting time here for us in the Reporting team and we’re especially proud of the tremendous progress that’s been made to provide you with an easy-to-use, cross-project, cross-tool reporting solution. We’ve built on the foundation of the Jazz Reporting Service and Data Collection component in 5.0 that many of you have helped shape to bring several new advancements in reporting in Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) 6.0. I encourage you to give the latest release a try and give us feedback! [Read more]

Jazz is an initiative to transform software and systems delivery by making it more collaborative, productive and transparent, through integration of information and tasks across the phases of the lifecycle. The Jazz initiative consists of three elements: Platform, Products and Community.
Jazz Team Server (JTS) provides the foundational services which enable a group of tools to work together as a single logical server, and includes any number of Jazz Team Server Extensions that provide the tool-specific functionality. All of the foundation and tool-specific services are RESTful web services.
Technically, The Jazz Foundation Services (JFS) are a concrete set of RESTful web services – REST APIs – for dealing with user and project administration, security, collaboration, query, and other generic cross-tool capabilities.
The Jazz platform is designed to support any industry participant who wants to improve the software and systems lifecycle and break down walls between tools. The platform is built on architectural principles that represent a key departure from approaches taken in the past. Unlike the way monolithic, closed products of the past are integrated, Jazz has an innovative approach to integration based on open, flexible services and Internet architecture.
Jazz is an open platform designed to support any industry participant who wants to improve the software lifecycle and break down walls between tools.
Organizations need to flexibly assemble their software delivery environment, using their preferred tools and vendors. Since this environment is not static, organizations need to evolve their environment as their needs change at their own pace.
The Jazz platform provides the technical foundation for several types of lifecycle tool integration. This platform consists of an architecture and a set of application frameworks and toolkits as shown on the slide.
There are two principal facets of the Jazz architecture:
1) Linked Lifecycle Data, applying the W3C “Linked Data” standard to the realm of lifecycle data (e.g., requirements, change requests, test plans, code, etc.)
2)Integration services, providing cross-cutting capability for any lifecycle tool (e.g., user admin, project admin, lifecycle query) to enable the "system" of tools to work well together
The Jazz architecture addresses this problem by providing standard interfaces and methods for tools to establish links to data housed and managed by other tools, possibly those built on widely varying technologies. Jazz embraces the linked data approach as implemented in the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) initiative. Linked data is the fundamental architectural principle of OSLC, making it "the community and specifications for Linked Lifecycle Data.“
Integration services are general purpose cross-tool capabilities that enable the whole (a set of Jazz products) to be greater than the sum of its parts.
Some integration services (e.g., user identity management) provide a capability that all tools can use, delivering a predictable in-tool experience, and simplifying cross-tool interactions. Other integration services (e.g., dashboards or lifecycle project admin) are implemented by several tools, and knit together to provide a coherent overall integrated capability.
