Under the organization of Guide Share Europe, a new User-Working Group has been established called : " Jazz Collaboration Lifecycle Management Europe "
GSE (www.gse.org); the premier IBM User Group since 1959 has over 130 Working Groups distributed within 10 European regions.This new working group however is at a European level so there will be no regional language barriers, rather all session will be in English. It is neither business nor platform dependent.
Purpose - Mission Statement :
Enterprises normally have several locations, environments, platforms in use, each with different groups, all trying to develop software applications together to fulfill the enterprises's needs. This European Working Group provides a forum for these enterprises to share their usage of Jazz and IBM Rational collaborative lifecycle management tools within their software development environments, with other enterprises. The group will also be a vehicle for Jazz and IBM development to explain their product direction as well as the tooling itself. Through this face to face contact, a feedback mechanism for enterprises and development can be realized. ( http
In the first trial meeting held in Duesseldorf Germany in October we had customer experience sessions from UGIS-Unicredit Group, GAD, VKB, and Xact ( Danske Bank ) as well as technical sessions over things like RTC deep dive in Dependency Builds, RTC & HP QM integration, Continuous Integration with RTC-RQ;-RTW, RTW, RQM. The technical sessions were delivered by development architects, senior developers, DEs out of for example the Lexington, Raleigh, or Toronto labs. Presentation materials from Duesseldorf can be downloaded from the GSE site.
