products intended to provide business continuity are added to the international solutions catalogue IBM Global Solutions Directory
. IBM Corporation adds to this directory the most significant solutions
that are based on IBM technologies and have been successfully
implemented for a number of customers.
GanttChart for ClearQuest is added to the IBM Global Solutions Directory with the ID 41151. GanttChart for ClearQuest is a plug-in for IBM Rational ClearQuest 7.0, 7.1 or later version. This plug-in is of interest for everybody who uses IBM Rational ClearQuest
and who lacks for project management functionality. The module does not
substitute the existing project management tools. It just adds
operational slices into IBM Rational. For most users, the functions provided by the plug-in are enough for planning and operation management.
"Recently our solution ProjectTracker has been added to the IBM Global Solutions Directory and now the turn of GanttChart for ClearQuest has come. This solution was developed as a result of an effort of both our specialists and our clients.
The idea to create such solution has emerged as a result of close
cooperation with our customers and deep understanding of their business
problems. In most companies we have cooperated with the planning
horizon for tasks and works is measured in months and quarters, but not
years. Project managers have often to modify work schedule, update it,
establish priorities, and set responsible persons. ClearQuest is a powerful tool that simplifies this process, but it has its limits. In ClearQuest,
planning and representation of tasks is performed in flat view, but all
managers are used to using the Gantt chart for planning. Unfortunately,
the standard ClearQuest package does not provide users with such
opportunity. GanttChart for ClearQuest allows managers to save a lot of time while preparing plans of work/tasks and exercising operational control over the project. In absolute terms, a manager spends about 12-16 minutes on rescheduling the average group of connected tasks without using GanttChart. Using GanttChart for ClearQuest, the same operation takes 10-15 seconds. So, using GanttChart for ClearQuest results in increasing the manager’s efficiency and manageability of the whole project. We are greatly pleased to have gained recognition of our contribution from IBM Corporation", Alexander Novichkov , the general director of CM-Consult, sais.
