At the end of this video, you should be aware that Rational DOORS Next Generation has a fully functional web client and does not install locally. It uses artifacts instead of objects. It has multiple editors to capture and elaborate requirements information. Some administration happens at the Jazz level and some at the project level. Definitions of types happens outside the module. Working with modules is similar to the way things were done before. Some new things should be noticed as well, such as dashboards, views that are shared across modules, and the ability to use artifacts in multiple modules.
One thing that is not obvious in the video but should be noted, is that if you install Rational DOORS Next Generation as part of the IBM Rational solution, with IBM Rational Quality Manager and IBM Rational Team Concert, you get additional lifecycle capabilities with your Rational DOORS or Rational DOORS Next Generation license.
