Jason O'Donnell, Rational Telelogic KM/eSupport, shares what's been keeping him busy over the last few months:
On Monday February 2nd, 2009, Telelogic Support began working as IBMRational Support. The same great support engineers are still in place,just under a new name!
The Telelogic Support Site has been updated to reflect these changes andbegin guiding clients to the appropriate Telelogic product resources onibm.com. The Telelogic Support Site will remain available in aread-only state which will end in July 2009. At that time the site willbegin redirecting to IBM.com resources.
To aid you in this transition a browser toolbar has been designed byIBM specifically for existing Telelogic Support clients to centralizethe essential support pages for all your Telelogic Product Supportneeds. You can download and install the Telelogic/Rational SupportToolbar from:
Additionally, you may find the Rational Support - Telelogic support overview page located at http
This page contains a one-sheet reference guide about how to contactsupport in your geography. This also includes the latest Telelogicsupport transition communication, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), aswell as the details about how to begin navigating IBM Software Support.
