Architecting Smarter Banking Solutions with IBM CICS and Rational Tools
Webcast date: Tuesday, June 28, 2011; 11:00 AM ET
Update GRUG on latest CICS and RDz solutions with focus on Banking sector.
Financial institutions are facing tremendous challenges to adapt, yet often have siloed and constrained legacy systems that are not well suited to a world that is flatter, riskier, and smarter. Watch how the New features in CICS and Rational Developer for System z facilitate adapting existing systems to leverage modern SOA, Web 2.0 and mobile technologies, to achieve flexibility and speed development while still maintaining best practice architectural principals. Utilizing these new features can be easy and non-invasive to the existing systems, so you can adapt while maintaining stability and robustness. Come see how new updates from Rational and CICS support implementing.
Catherine Moxey is an IBM Senior Technical Staff Member in CICS Strategy and Planning
Dave Myers is the System z Application Development Tools Product Line Manager

Collaborative Design Management with Rational Software Architect and Rational Rhapsody
Webcast date: Wednesday, June 29, 2011; 11:00 AM ET
Software and system architecture and designs help resolve the inherent complexity of intelligent, interconnected and instrumented solutions, but there are numerous challenges that go beyond solution complexity. The extended team of subject matter experts is needed to provide insights and feedback on these designs to make sure the solutions meet the right market demands, satisfy customer needs and deliver the expected quality. Everyone from business analysts, stakeholders and other team members need to be involved from the early stages of development. There's also a need to introduce traceability of designs to requirements and work items and ensure the communication and understanding of plans across stakeholders, architects, operations and beyond.
Levering the Jazz foundation for collaboration, Rational's Collaborative Design Management capabilities aim to extend Rational Software Architect (RSA) and Rational Rhapsody to allow you and your teams to search, browse, comment, discuss, and review your designs from both the existing rich clients as well as from a new Web client just for design management. Capabilities for linking the design artifacts to other lifecycle artifacts through Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) interfaces and for visualizing those traceability links are also key reasons a CDM solution is right for organizations facing complexity issues of all types.
Attend this webcast to learn more about these new capabilities and ask questions directly from our leading experts.

The Global Rational User Group Community
I thought it was just me noticing a lot more people on Twitter, but this report from cnet news seems to confirm it. Year to year, from February 08 to February 09, Nielson reports that Twitter has seen a staggering 1382% growth.
Sure, there's an increase in noise ... spammers and such, but there's also a lot more genuine conversation going on out there as more and more real people come on board too.
What started as a playground for the tech geeks and early adopter-types is now being embraced by the mainstream. And hooray for that!
Individual IBMers have been on Twitter since the beginning, and I'm following about six billion of them. And now I'm starting to see more and more IBM and Rational-specific twitter handles out there: @RationalUT, @RationalTester, @rsc2009, @developerWorks, @IBMEvents,
Are you on Twitter? Are you tweeting about IBM and/or Rational? Want to share? Leave a comment and let us know who you are! Let's build the community.
Did you know - Cadence Virtuoso integrates with ClearCase? And even better... the latest fix pack has more features to offer…

With IBM® Rational® ClearCase® - Cadence Integration, IBM brings its enterprise configuration and change management solution to analog, radio frequency, or mixed signal designers using Cadence Design Framework. This allows you to take advantage of core capabilities of IBM Rational ClearCase, without leaving your familiar design environment. This integration allows custom chip designers to complete ClearCase actions while in the Cadence Design Framework II toolset. This makes parallel development, co-development, and co-management of hardware and software domains and artifacts possible. Having common SCM tools for hardware and software development results in more flexibility in system integration and offers several other advantages. The following article describes those advantages and some of the important features of the ClearCase-Cadence integration – Integrate IBM Rational ClearCase with Cadence Design Framework II
Some of the benefits offered by this integration are as follows:
Starting with ClearCase 126.96.36.199 and ClearCase 188.8.131.52, the Cadence Design Framework integration is included with ClearCase as a component that can be installed as part of the ClearCase install with IBM Installation Manager. For information on installing and upgrading Cadence Virtuoso Integration, refer to Infocenter here. And for detailed system requirements refer here.
The latest fix-pack release includes the following new features:
