describes how IBM Rational and IBM Tivoli products integrate. Here is an excerpt from this paper:
This paper describes the challenges that exist between development and operations and how integrations between products from IBM Rational and IBM Tivoli support effective collaboration to achieve improved accuracy, efficiency, agility, and security in the deployment and monitoring of software systems. The scope of the paper spans the areas of strategic planning, deployment planning, automation, and the identification and remediation of production problems.
In virtually all modern organizations, software has become a critical component in achieving strategic objectives and competitive advantage. Internet-enabled connectivity has led to the creation of new business models and has transformed how we collect market intelligence, market and sell products, and manage overall business processes. Recent history has shown that organizations who fail to effectively utilize and manage software simply cannot compete. An IBM CIO study of hundreds of companies revealed that a number of organizations are struggling to just get their software into production consistently. In fact, 50% of deployed applications must be rolled back, with rework accounting for more than 30% of project costs. Reversing this trend requires improvement not only in software development and operational management practices but also in optimizing the collaboration and processes that span these two domains.
