Katur stopped by this afternoon to show off his new Redbook: Collaborative Application Lifecycle Management with IBM Rational Products, written in collaboration with other good peeps, several of which I've had the pleasure of working with. Katur Patel and Brianna Smith currently work in Rational Client Support.
It's 600+ pages of fun and excitement featuring Build Forge, ClearCase, ClearQuest, ReqPro, and introducing Rational Quality Manager, Rational Requirements Composer Rational Software Analyzer and Rational Team Concert.
From the back cover:
In this book, we provide a reference scenario and tool architectures for deploying the new IBM Rational products into an existing enterprise environment. We also provide a set of blueprints that define each of the key disciplines in the development life cycle to help you understand the domain and how the Rational products support the need of that discipline. Our primary focus is to highlight the value of CALM by providing a user view of the solution that is used to support a distributed enterprise development team that incorporates aspects of the "Agility-at-Scale" approach.

Application Lifecycle Management, also known as ALM, is not a new phrase in software development, but perhaps one with which you are still not entirely familiar. ALM can help improve lifecycle collaboration and software development efficiency. How, you may be asking? Why through diligent application of the five imperatives for ALM, of course!
CM Crossroads has just published an article featuring our Collaborative Lifecycle Management Solution, titled "Five Imperatives of ALM", written by our very own Carolyn Pampino!
Not only does the article detail the benefits of ALM in general, but it also demonstrates how IBM Rational has raised the bar for ALM solutions by articulating five imperatives backed by proof points showing how our integrated product offerings meet those imperatives.
So go on, check out Carolyn's content rich article on CM Crossroads... we hope you enjoy it as much as we have! You can find the article here:
And don't forget to check out our other C/ALM content on the Jazz.net library where we will also publish a .pdf version of Carolyn's Five Imperatives soon! Just point your browser to: http

How do you know when you're really ready to release? Answering this question requires ALM visibility spanning project management, requirements, coding, build and testing artifacts. In this demo, we show how the Rational solution provides the end-to-end visibility agile teams need to succeed with ALM. The demo starts with a development plan that shows the relationship among plan items, requirements and test cases. We see how adding a new plan item to the release backlog drives a choreographed set of team activities for project managers, analysts, developers and quality professionals.
Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager, and Rational Requirements Composer were demoed using the 3.0 Beta 2 versions.
