We can talk about innovation till we're blue in the face, but if IBM software doesn't actually foster innovation, why use it? Well, the good news is it does -- and the 2011 Chevrolet Volt beautifully illustrates that innovation in action. This electric vehicle has revolutionized the way General Motors develops its automobiles, and Rational software has enabled GM engineers to develop the Volt in a fraction of their usual development time. (Its 10 million lines of code is nearly twice the amount required to fly an F-35 fighter plane.) See how the Rational platform played a key role in the development of this exciting new car.
Can we help your organization achieve that kind of success? Why not? Find out how new and enhanced Rational solutions can help you break down barriers to innovation, and enable you to deliver higher-quality software to your customers. Among the enhancements is a turbocharged new version of Rational Team Concert that boasts new formal planning templates, new risk management capabilities, and lots more. Recently, IBM's Vice President of Marketing for Rational Software, Gina Poole, got a chance to test drive the Volt -- check out her new blog to find out what she thought, and to get her take on the key role that software plays in innovation.
So how innovative do I need to be to get a test drive of my own?
