At Innovate 2012 in Orlando, June 3-7 there will be two requirements management (RM) tracks – one focused on RM for IT application development, and product-wise primarily on RequisitePro and Rational Requirements Composer; and another focused on RM for systems engineering (SE), and product-wise on DOORS. This blog post is focused on the RM for SE track but look out for another on the IT focused track.
I think you’ll find that the RM for SE track has some really strong content this year. Out of 16 sessions, 10 will feature customer speakers, including:
- How IBM Rational DOORS Helps Jet Propulsion Laboratory Get to Mars and Beyond: Best Practices in Metrics, Verification, and Traceability
- Using IBM Rational DOORS to Support Systems Engineering and Release Management across Multiple Programs at Trane, a heating, ventilation & air conditioning systems manufacturer
- A CareFusion Case Study of Integrating IBM Rational DOORS and HP Quality Center for Use in an FDA Environment
- Integrating IBM Rational DOORS with IBM Rational Team Concert: Lessons Learned at Raytheon
You’ll also be able to meet product management and senior development staff and ask them questions in our ‘Ask The Experts (for DOORS version 7.x, 8.x and 9.x users)’, and you’ll hear about IBM’s strategy and roadmap in ‘What's Now and Next in Requirements Management for Systems Engineering’, including the latest release and plans for the DOORS 9.x series.
If you’ve been following our RM developments recently you’ll be aware of the DOORS Next Generation project on Jazz.net and you’ll hear about that during the Now and Next session, and if you want to dive deeper into what’s planned be sure to go to the session ‘Deep Dive Investigation and Feedback about IBM Rational DOORS Next-Generation Beta’ and visit the DOORS Next Generation demo pedestal in the Innovation Lab area of the Solution Center.
And if you’ve ever attended before, you’ll know that a popular feature is the DOORS DXL Script Exchange competition, where you can demonstrate your prowess in DXL and win a small prize. For more details about this year’s competition (with a twist!) please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Scripts are due on or before May 25th.
On top of all this fantastic content (and this is just for one track – there are over 400 sessions across the whole conference!), Innovate is a great opportunity to network with other systems engineers and software developers, share war stories, tips and tricks and maybe a drink or two.
