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.

As is the custom this time of year, those of us in the United States, and the expats living abroad are likely deep in the throes of celebrating a day of thanks by feasting upon a traditional Turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
Of course that means the Rational Support North American crew is largely out of the office today and tomorrow (Nov 24th and 25th). But have no fear, we do have crews still available to assist with your critical issues if needed!

Well, your intrepid adventurers have 3 days of Working Outside the Inbox under our belts and I thought this a would be a good time to discuss in a little more depth about how we are doing this.
Lets start with Step 1: Stop replying to email. This step would really be more accurately described as Mindful Processing of Email but that doesn't sound nearly as provocative and attention-grabbing, and wouldn't make nearly so many people's heads explode, which wouldn't be nearly as much fun.
So listen: this is what we are really doing.
Think of this as stopping the reflexive knee-jerk reaction of working in your inbox, simply reading and replying. We've all become very well trained by our inboxes: receive an email, send an email. Read your incoming email and then...
Stop. Think. Ask yourself a few questions along these lines:
Change begins with us (and you!)
Here are some wild and crazy ideas on how you can work effectively and openly and without being chained to your inbox:
Use the content repository or content management system of your choice as long as it's NOT YOUR MACHINE. Don't become the bottleneck, or the single point of failure. Put your stuff where people can find it and get it. When people email and ask you for that information, give them a link to the information where you've posted it.
Use wiki pages for knowledge capture and on-demand access. One example, instead of keeping your project status or metrics in a spreadsheet on your machine, think open and transparent and provide that data on a wiki page. if your manager expects a weekly status report, put it there.
discussion forums for collaboration, idea sharing and brai
Use the community blog for news, announcements, and community-wide communications. Why blog? To take advantage of all the technology that allows us to share knowledge more widely ... tags, RSS feeds, aggregators, search.... the list goes on. Rather than sending an 800mg email that immediately plunges 20% of your unsuspecting audience into "mail jail", try blogging your news. Oh, the 80% who aren't in mail jail? I posit that 40% will not read it anyway, either deliberately or by accident when it scrolls "below the fold" amidst a barrage of other people sending news, asking questions, and, worst of all, sharing files.
Besides, I bet a couple of weeks from now, someone's going to ask you for the information again anyway.
Speaking of sharing files.... There are better ways. Instead of mailing a slide deck to 10 people for review and comments, use Connections and if you MUST send an email, send a link to where you have posted the file (or the wiki page from which you are working) so that it can benefit the greatest number of people, who can then bookmark it / subscribe to it / grab the RSS feed, or otherwise self-serve when they need the information. Which means the doc owner doesn't need to send the updated file out to a cast of thousands either.
Oh, it all just makes so much SENSE.
So no, we're not giving up email entirely, and there will be times that we will (gasp!) send an email. We're just going to be mindful in our work and aim to get the maximum value from each interaction.
So, stop and think.
Just because a conversation starts in email doesn't mean it belongs there.

To this end, you should see a pop-up survey when navigating to this blog which will enable you to fill out the short 6 question survey without leaving the page. This pop-up will only appear until you've taken the survey once. After that, you won't be bothered with it again. If the pop-up doesn't display you may access it directly her
We run these surveys twice yearly in an effort to gauge our successes and failures beyond simple metrics like clicks and visits. This particular survey will remain available for the month of December, closing on the 31st at 11:45pm PST. We hope you will take a moment and provide your input on our efforts.
We recognize the importance and value of your direct input, and are committed to making changes based upon what you tell us. In this world of information overload demanding returns on your investment of time, we want to make sure you are seeing the best ROI possible by following us. But, for Kelly, Matt, and Jason to make any changes here, we need to hear from YOU! After all, there's no technology in the world more valuable than direct client feed
