CLM has been developed to support transparent, agile development in a collaborative fashion. That was the main focus in the beginning and is designed for transparency across the stakeholders. Gradually Enterprise customers wanted to give access of the Work Items to the external world in a restricted fashion. It is just a question how to implement all that without sacrificing the benefits such as usability and performance. One way of doing this is having the reverse proxy sitting outside of the firewall. Another method is to provide customers a way to reach the server(s) e.g. by providing a VPN tunnel. Or you have to punch a hole into the firewall to be able to reach the public URI's. In this article we are trying to explain one of the ways of providing external access to CLM. (through proxy)
JKE as a product company wanted to have a mechanism to expose the CCM server to their end customers to create a new Feature into the existing products list and even wanted to keep track of the progress of the same. One CLM instance/server is exclusively allocated for the JKE internal team for their product development lifecycle (Name:-CLM). The second instance of CLM will be used to give access to the external users to isolate the production server from external world (Name:-CLMEXT). One user id will be provided for each customer with restricted access to fulfill the following conditions.
One user id for each customer and one JKE id for the sales team
Each customer will get access only to their specific features and its workflow.
Only common features are accessible to all the customers.
Sales team should be in a position to respond to the queries from the customers through pre-configured responses.
Reverse proxy has to be configured in JKE reverse proxy server to provide access to the external customers. (Reverse proxy can be configured within CLM also.)
Once the features are been created in CLMEXT by the customers, JKE team can validate the same and a new WI will be added manually into the CLM server. (Note:- Work items can be added to CLM server automatically using cross server communication)
A link from the CLM WIs to CLMEXT Feature will be created and will be visible only from CLM by the JKE team.
JKE team has to manually update the status of the progress of the new Features in CLMEXT.

All you need is a jazz.net
id (registration is pretty simple) andwithin a matter of seconds I had the products
provisioned for me. I can go to each product on the web and see the functionality. Whats more is I can connect my RTC desktop clients to these images too !! Now thats what I call ease of use As mentioned on the sandbox home page, the 4.0 sandboxes are available until Dec. 31st
Now sitting in my office (or
home) I can access these products and see the new capabilities in action. Try it yourself !
IBM Rational® solutions for collaborative design management enable an organization to bring together a broad set of stakeholders—customers, line-of-business managers, operations, development teams, and others—to contribute to and influence the design of products, software and systems. This new level of collaboration can help to drive improved quality and achieve successful business outcomes.
Many teams find it challenging to get a project started quickly, to get team members oriented, to set up and configure tools, and to take advantage of proven patternsof success to do their jobs. Many other teams are required to document their processes for compliance reasons, and show that they follow that process.
Jazz allows us to create a new process template or customize an exisiting process template in RRC, RTC & RQM.
Jazz tools (RRC,RTC & RQM) have pre-defined process templates which can be modified according to the project needs. Process template has different components such as Overview, Timelines, Roles, Permissions, Access Control, Configuration Data and Process Description. Each of these components can be customized according to your project needs.

A team of IBM top experts assigned to Nairobi today provided a cohesive framework and
roadmap to the city to improve the flow of road traffic and increase
revenues from the transportation sector. The recommendations complement Nairobi's considerable ongoing investment
in underlying roadway infrastructure. They include making traffic
information more readily available to citizens, motorists, police,
policymakers and planners so that better transportation decisions can be
made in the near and far term. Read more..
America's skyscrapers, many built before World War Two, are showing their age. IBM's "building whisperer," Dave Bartlett, believes many of these buildings could use a diet.Bartlett,
who leads IBM's smarter building initiative, is known as the "building

that can help identify problems and suggest cost-effective ways of
making buildings healthier and more energy-efficient. Read more..
Today, a major portion of newly developed enterprise applications is based on Internet connectivity of a geographically distributed work force that all need on-line access to their respective information systems. To prevent the performance-related issues in these newly developed web-based applications, development teams should have ability to validate the scalability and reliability of application before deployment at production sites.
Main benefit of an effective performance testing tool is to ensure the availability, scalability, robustness, and responsiveness of an application with the end-users and client’s business perspective IBM Rational Performance Tester offers a very simple-to-use test recorder, automated data manipulation, advanced and flexible workload scheduling, real-time reporting and a highly scalable execution engine to help ensure that applications are prepared to handle large user loads without compromising on the overall performance of the system, even with limited memory and processing resources
Rational Performance tester supports:
* Multi-user performance testing to validate web application scalability before deployment, with both a Windows and a Linux-based user interface * GUI-based test creation * flexible test customisation with Java code * load and performance testing of applications including web, Siebel 7.7 and SAP Join us for a quick tour, demo on Rational Performance Tester at the Innovate 2011!
