IBM Rational Talks to You
#261 Agile. Everywhere.Agile practices have transformed the way software is built and delivered. Today, Agile is used in virtually every industry and is being used to deliver every type of software from mobile to mainframe, Agile is everywhere and impacts everyone! Whether you are a developer, tester, analyst, architect or project manager agile could be in your future. Please take a few minutes to join Matt Holitza as he explores what the move to agile could mean for you and your team. Speaker, Matt Holitza.
#260 Testing Complex Financial Services Applications from Mobile to MainframeBanking, Insurance and Financial Market applications and processes have increasingly complex testing needs that are hindering time to market and increasing costs. Recent results show that financial institutions around the world are addressing this challenge in order to excel in rapidly changing financial environments. Join this podcast to hear how, from Mobile to Mainframe apps: 1)Test lab infrastructure costs can be reduced by up to 90%. 2)Labor involved in setting up test environments can be reduced by 80%+. 3)Test environments can be configured in minutes versus weeks. And 4) Developers have the means to test software earlier. Speakers, Sue Green and Adam Olson.
#259 Integrating Testing into the Development LifecycleThe role of embedded software is growing exponentially in Engineering systems and quality in these systems is no longer a differentiator, but a necessity for success. Increasing development time or cost is not an option, therefore engineers must evolve their techniques to remain competitive. Learn how IBM and National Instruments are investing to equip engineers with technology to produce superior system quality and validation efficiency with the ability to trace and improve development end to end and improve collaboration between all engineering teams from initial requirements through final systems test. Speakers, Chris Washington and Sanjiv Jain.
#258 Systems Engineering – It’s Not Just for EngineersSystems engineering is increasingly being recognized as an essential technology for successful development of innovative, software-intensive smart products. Unlike the systems engineering in the Apollo age, visualized as a room full of slide-rules and skinny black ties, today’s systems engineering is more pervasive than ever before. Extending beyond typical engineering benefits such as lower costs, higher quality and reduced risk, today’s systems engineering, if utilized intelligently, can have a significant business impact – touching not only engineering, but manufacturing, procurement, support, and planning, as well as affecting future profit opportunities of long-lived products. Join Greg Gorman and Steve Shoaf as they discuss how systems engineering can impact business decisions made outside the engineering organization.
#257 When An All-in-One ALM Solution May Be EnoughAre you tired of vendors pushing their over the top ALM solutions on you? Are you fed up with having to contort the way your team naturally works to fit someone else’s solution? Are you frustrated at how much effort you are spending trying to keep multiple development tools up and running? Then get some answers by attending this refreshingly candid podcast and learn how a simpler, leaner approach may be all you really need. Speaker, Bernie Coyne, Sr.
#256 Adopting agile methods for safety-critical systems developmentAgile methods can bring benefits of discipline and efficiency to software development, and agile can be—and is—applied to the development of safety critical systems. In this podcast, Bruce Douglass answers a selection of questions from practitioners and managers engaged in safety-critical development on the topic of agile adoption.
#255 The power of service virtualization to reduce the costly application footprintEvery agency is under pressure to reduce costs while at the same time increasing the amount of development. Join us to learn how service virtualization can "bend the cost curve" with more agility and less risk. The power of virtualization has moved from the data center floor to mission delivery with new service virtualization reduce the cost of developing and sustaining the complex, integrated systems that are critical for agency programs and operations. Madeline Bayliss and Tamara Kulesa, speakers.
#254 Governing outsourced development for Government AgenciesFor years, Governments have been trying to reap the benefits of Service-Oriented Architectures to improve their business agility. Whether agency information and processes are currently deployed on legacy systems, requires new modern development, or relies on the integration of open data, the core principles and capabilities for collaborative development can help drive successful SOA programs resulting in improved citizen outcomes and reduced costs.
#253 IBM Point of View: Measuring Software Quality - Why Your Metrics Don't Make the GradeSoftware quality and customer satisfaction are measured by companies more than any other form of measurement. However is the data being captured and analyzed providing an accurate reflection of reality with respect to quality and customer satisfaction? Join Al Wagner as he reflects on the recent IBM sponsored webcast where Capers Jones presented today’s more practical measures and metrics allowing companies to be more predictable with quality.
#252 Get smart with mainframe developmentLearning about Rational Developer for System z
#251 Applying Requirements to the Life Cycle DevelopmentRequirements come in many shapes and sizes.
#250 How to Get the Right Engineering Data at Your Fingertips, FasterAs a chief engineer, systems engineer, software engineer, or electrical engineer do you spend too much time searching for engineering data relevant to the task or decision at hand?
#249 Introducing Rational's Intelligent Transportation Systems CapabilitiesGreen Light - Go! We are proud to introduce IBM Rational capabilities to accelerate the planning, design, and the development of complex intelligent transportation systems, while ensuring compliance to regulations.
#248 Mobile Ops - Why Should You Care?User expectations around mobile apps have made it imperative for development teams to deliver releases early and often , showcasing new features and obtaining feedback from line of business stakeholders and targeted customers.
#247 The Future of Requirements in Agile Product DevelopmentCompanies are increasingly looking to agile methods to cut risk, improve quality and increase flexibility in complex product development.
#246 The Software Edge: How Effective Software Development Drives Competitive AdvantageThe 2012 IBM Global CEO study found today's business leaders rank technology as the most important external force that will impact their organizations.
#245 Better Decision Support for Medical Devices Product ManagementMedical device companies have to find ways to compete with lower-cost competition worldwide.
#244 Introducing the Rational Solution for Electronic DesignRational Solution for Electronics Design increases productive and reduces overall development costs
#243 Bringing Mobile to Your Power Systems ApplicationsWe seem to be in a mobile "2.0" zone, where companies are realizing that they must up their game to remain competitive.
