In lieu of a "Meet the Peeps" post this week (due to vacations, holidays, etcetera) I thought I may wax philosophic for a moment about "community"and building connections.

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

Asset management, broadly defined, refers to any system that monitors and maintains things of value to an entity or group. It may apply to both tangible assets such as buildings, and to intangible concepts such as intellectual property and goodwill.
Know where your assets are....
IBM Rational Asset Manager is a collaborative environment for creating and governing software assets. A definitive library management system where you catalog, organize, use, reuse, manage, and report on any type of software, technology, or business asset.
A collaborative software development asset management solution, IBM Rational Asset Manager software enables organizations to identify, manage and govern the design, development and consumption of software assets, including services as part of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) initiative. The software helps IT organizations deliver innovative IT solutions while controlling costs, reducing application backlogs and improving business flexibility and responsiveness by facilitating software asset reuse.

Purchasers of IBM Rational Asset manager can choose among three types of product licenses: an Authorized User license, an Authorized User Fixed Term License (FTL) and a Floating license. The best choice for your organization depends upon how many people will use the product, how often they will require access. Lets understand the concepts of keys ( licenses ) behind this dynamic software.
Types of RAM (Rational Asset Manager ) Licenses:
Licensing Model for Standard Edition:
Licensing Model for Enterprise Edition :
Addresses different usage patterns
→ Administrators assign users to AU licenses: Collaborator or Publisher.
→ SE licenses cannot be used in an EE servers.
→ Collaborator license only allows search, download and comment on assets.
→ Audit report can be generated to show license usage.
→ Floating license is consumed by users not assigned an AU license.
→ Collaborator license is consumed initially until a publisher feature is invoked then license consumption switches to publisher.
→ 30 minutes of inactivity or logging out releases the license (Floating).
→ Programmatic access consumes a license → Concurrent programmatic access consumes multiple licenses equal to the number of concurrent programmatic access.
→ When a user searches and browses without authenticating then no floating license is used,
→ When an anonymous user displays a public asset details, then an available collaborator floating license is checked out,
→ When an authenticated user displays an asset, then a collaborator licence is checked out, unless you already have a publisher license from a previous action,
→ When an authenticated user modifies or submits an asset, then a publisher license is checked out ( and if a collaborator license was checked out, then it is check in )
→ When an authenticated user logs out, then the license is returned, for either collaborator or publisher, unless the user had other sessions,
For EE (Enterprise Edition) : each authorized user license is of one access type -> collaborator or Publisher
For SE (Standard Edition) : there is only one license type,
If the authorized user license is of type Collaborator, and the user attempts to modify or submit an asset, then an available Publisher license will be checked out.
Version 7.5 ( RAM ) includes the following enhancements and features:
Server licenses: Rational Asset Manager Enterprise Edition no longer requires the purchase of a server license, providing more flexibility in the deployment of clusters and stand-alone servers
Token licenses: Token licenses are now available. You can reduce deployment costs by sharing Token licenses across one or more Rational products.

It's really quite impressive, and well worth spending a few minutes on a Think Friday afternoon.
Makes me proud to be an IBMer.

In this six part demo series on developerWorks, we show you the ins and outs of IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering. All six of the articles below will take you to pages on developerWorks from which you can either click to view the demo, or download the video and transcripts for review later or in secure environments.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 1: Collaboration, Planning and Change Management- In this first demonstration in the lifecycle walkthrough we will show you how to use work item management, project dashboards and lifecycle traceability to deliver greater team collaboration, transparency and improved project over sight.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 2: Requirements Management- In this demonstration, we will update and test a popular software library downloaded from the internet.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 3: Quality Management- In this demonstration in the lifecycle walk-through we will show you how to use requirements and model driven quality management to validate system behaviour and verify compliance as early as possible in the lifecycle.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 4: Architecture Management- In this demonstration in the life cycle walk through we will show you the use of standards based modeling techniques to capture, analyze and design complex systems.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 5: Embedded Software Development- In this demonstration, we will update and test a popular software library downloaded from the internet.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 6: Visualise, Analyse and Organise Lifecycle Data (RELM)- We will start inside Rational Team Concert as Susan, our lead systems engineer, and we're working inside the project for the Automated Meter Reader System.
