Integrating IBM Rational Requirements and HP ALM with Rational Lifecycle Adapters- If you use HP Application Lifecycle Management software (HP ALM) for quality management, you can use the IBM Rational Adapter for HP ALM to integrate data with Rational Requirements Composer, Rational DOORS Next Generation, Rational Team Concert, or Rational ClearQuest. Developers, testers, and analysts can then work in their own tools and collaborate with each other by using linked resources. The adapters also integrate the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) with selected non-IBM software. The first release includes adapters for HP ALM, Atlassian JIRA, and Git software. [Read More]

I have been asked by a couple of customers using IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) to see if there is a way to make 'Links' as a required attribute with regards to RTC Work Items. A sample scenario they've noted, where having 'Links' as required attribute being useful, is something like this:
This capability has not yet been implemented and as such it is not yet possible to make the 'Links' attribute as required in RTC. There has, however, been a Request For Enhancement (RFE) raised against this, visible at the jazz.net work item link:
Need (or want) even better insights into the RTC tool and development structure? Start at the dashboard here and learn about the development plans, roadmaps, and ongoing work to improve RTC and Jazz!

Stopwatch demo showing model-driven development with IBM Rational Rhapsody in Ada- Ada is a rich high-level language designed for embedded real-time, high integrity and large scale systems development. Progressively, in the Ada 95 and Ada 2005 revisions, it has incorporated more and more Object Oriented (OO) features further increasing its power and richness. During a similar timeframe there has been continued expansion in the use of the industry-standard OMG Unified Modeling Language (UML) for documenting OO designs in C++ and Java. There is arguably no better time for combining the two to help resolve longetivity challenges associated with maintaining Ada software designs. In this video we focus on the core principles and benefits of Model-Driven Development using IBM Rational Rhapsody; including automatically keeping the design and code synchronized at all times and showing its integration with compilers, including AdaCore's GNAT Pro compiler chain. The video uses a Stopwatch example model to highlight the added benefits of higher-level abstractions in UML2 to enable developers to focus on the essential parts of the design and make use of graphical programming techniques to speed up development and capture traceability to requirements. We also showcase Rhapsody in Ada features such as the newer Advanced roundtrip and model-level debugging.
Mainframe and Mobile - Are your back-end apps ready? Register now for the April 18 Webcast: http
Mobile is about anytime, anywhere access to information. It improves productivity and is driving business innovation in the enterprise. Mobility enables quicker access to customer data, improved customer satisfaction and support, customer access to business and important functionality, and the capability to respond to customer demands.
Mobile is not only one of the most exciting trends affecting IT today, but an inevitable one. Indeed, most companies already have some type of mobile strategy. However, in order to take it to the next level and offer five-star apps, businesses will have to integrate mobile applications with business-critical back-end data sources.
Join us for this complimentary webcast as our subject matter experts discuss a unique IBM solution that combines end-to-end application lifecycle management with both mobile and mainframe development features all integrated into one package. The experts will spotlight a new mobile app that uses the selling of office supplies as an example. They will also show you how to bring a green-screen application into the mobile era using Rational Developer for System z and Worklight.
Broadcast date: April 18, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. EDT / 3:00 p.m. GMT / 4:00 p.m. BST

Jazz LICENSING : Exploring Rational Team Concert
Rational Team Concert has a simple set of defined roles to enable key solutions for your organization. With Rational Team Concert you simply acquire licenses to support the roles and solutions that you are interested in. This provides you with an unprecedented level of flexibility and cost efficiency to choose and use only what you are interested in to support your needs. Rational Team Concert allows you to implement individual components of RTC now and others later simply through licensing - and without your typical deployment and integration headaches and risks.
When you purchase a role-based license for IBM Rational Team Concert you will have read, write, and comment access to some or all of the capabilities of the Change and Configuration Management application. In addition, there are three types of Developer client access licenses.
Client access licenses:
With a role-based licensing scheme, when you purchase a client access license for a particular role you will have read, write, and comment access to some or all of the capabilities of the Change and Configuration Management application.
You install the client access license activation kits in the License Key Management section in the Administration page of the Jazz Team Server. You assign the licenses to users in the Client Access License Management section of Jazz User Administration. See Installing and managing license keys for instructions.
