Creating a requirement in Rational Requirements Composer and transferring it to RequisitePro for management
Application security is very important and interesting. We all do personal business on the web whether it is online banking or shopping. We all expect and demand that our information we enter is secure and not vulnerable to attacks. We also need to assure that the applications we develop are secure. It is our responsibility as developers, to help create a smarter and more secure planet. Rational application security software helps IT and security professionals protect against the threat of attacks and data breaches. If you use applications to collect or exchange sensitive or personal data, your job as a security professional is harder now than ever before. IBM Rational AppScan is a leading application security testing suite designed to help manage vulnerability testing throughout the software development life cycle. Did I mention that it is our most popular demo? AppScan offers automated solutions for all types of security testing - outsourced, individual, and enterprise-wide analysis - and for all types of users - application developers, build managers, quality assurance teams, penetration testers, security auditors, and senior management.
This demo takes you through the process of scanning a Web application for
security vulnerabilities using Rational AppScan Standard Edition.
I think I will declare today April 10th, Database Administrator (DBA) Day. Why not? They work very hard and are often stretched to the limit. This person or team is responsible for the design, implementation, maintenance and repair of an organization's database. They monitor and improve database performance and capacity. They plan for future expansion requirements. They also plan and implement security measures to safeguard the database.
That is a lot of responsibility and rarely recognized unless something goes wrong.
For a Database Administrator gift, you may want to consider Optim. It streamlines and simplifies daily DBA tasks including database maintenance, schema change management, performance management, and database availability with IBM Integrated Data Management solutions for the DBA. More effective DBAs translates to better application performance, greater revenue, and more satisfied customers.
So it is a win win for both the DBA and the organization. Spread the word...Today is Database Administrator day!
Check out the demo...
DB2 DBA solution by Optim
See how a DB2® database administrator (DBA) uses Optim™ DBA solutions to address a wide variety of data management requirements with speed and agility, while reducing overall risk to the business. In this demo, a performance problem is quickly identified, diagnosed, and solved using Optim Performance Manager Extended Edition and Optim Query Tuner. The application team’s requirements for database changes are handled with greater agility while reducing risk and providing auditability by using Optim Database Administrator. Finally, the DBA helps a colleague use Optim High Performance Unload to meet the requirement to migrate large quantities of data up to 10 times faster than using DB2 Export alone.

Everyday over 50,000 airplanes are guided safely through the air. The new air traffic control teams are becoming digitally savvy using more high tech software and tools to do their job more efficiently for the safety of all of us.
The air traffic control team works much like a software development team, where there are many defined roles, all very important to complete the mission.
For example, different types of air flight controllers take control of the flight throughout the planes journey to it's destination, from departure gate to arrival gate. (Think of the plane as an application) It is a very complex process just like the software development process.
Clearing each flight from the gate to the runway involves several steps and teams of people working together. The pilot calls for clearance and will receive clearance from the ground controller, who will take the pilot to the appropriate runway and will put the plane in line for take off. The ground controller will also manage any factors affecting the flight such as weather.
The local controller will take the aircraft and issue the "take off clearance", to get the pilot airborne. Once the aircraft is airborne, the tower control contacts departure control and the flight is handed off to Tracon, who's job it is to get the plane through all the other aircraft in the area, track the plane to it's flight cruising altitude, and onto it's destination. Then a regional air route center then takes control.
Oh by the way, there are project manager types managing all this. Sound familiar?
IBM Software tools serve as an air traffic control system for IT. Development teams like air traffic controllers need to use the most up to date efficient tools and team tools to provide security and safety. We all need to create a smarter planet in everything we do. As software developers there are some awesome development tools available to help us create this smarter planet through software. We need to work efficiently and smarter in our global software development teams, as we hand code over from one team to the other. The key thing is communication, just like the flight controllers. Using development tools that help us communicate to our team members better, will help us develop better quality software in less time.
Check out these demos on how teams can use development tools to improve the communication through the development process:
Change management with IBM Rational ClearQuest and ClearCase, Part 1
This demo shows you how to integrate IBM® Rational® ClearQuest® and ClearCase® into a integrated change management solution. The deployed Web banking application is tested for defects. Once the test manager discovers the defect, the manager walks through the submission process. The defect is reviewed and assigned to a developer (Alex in the demo) by the project manager. Once the defect is assigned to the developer, he works to resolve the defect utilizing IBM Rational Application Developer, ClearQuest, and ClearCase. This is the first of a two part demo series. Demo
Change management with IBM Rational ClearQuest and ClearCase, Part 2
This demo continues where part 1 left off. It follows the developer (Alex) as he works on resolving the defect submitted to him. Alex uses IBM Rational Application Developer with plug-ins for ClearQuest and ClearCase. First, you'll see Alex's to-do list that contains submitted high severity defects assigned to him. Next, Alex connects to the ClearCase server and changes the code to correct the defect. Then Alex verifies his changes by running the application within his IDE. Finally, Alex checks in his changes and transition the state of the defect from open to resolved using ClearQuest. This is the second of a two part demo series. Demo

This just out! Spread the word and check out the Rational Focal Point Demo. It's all part of creating a smarter planet through software!
IBM technology drives the Chevrolet Volt
With help from Rational, General Motors is transforming its organization and the way it develops and delivers cars.
GM engineers used Rational solutions to develop critical electronic controls for the Volt's innovative battery system, electric drive unit, and cabin electronics. The vehicle's unique propulsion system required the design of an unprecedented "system of systems," centered on software that seamlessly integrates the Volt's battery pack with its electric drive system. IBM Rational software solutions were also used to help GM engineers model the interactions of the Volt's embedded systems, helping to increase the quality and efficiency.
To promote collaboration between global engineering teams, IBM is helping GM standardize their vehicle design on fewer software tools and a common design process, as well as helping them manage change throughout the product development process.
The result of GM's investment in solutions from IBM Rational? Accelerated response to consumer demands and compression of the time it takes to develop a new vehicle, from the auto industry average of five to 10 years, or longer, to 29 months!

If you think how small our world is and how enormous the task is to create a smarter planet, we really have to be smart about creating a smarter planet.
There is so much data that could be collected to help us understand the world better, in terms of health, trends in the environment, population growth and so on. For example, If all the doctors working on a cure for cancer had access to all the same information, those great minds could collectively work smarter and faster, and might just find a cure in our lifetime. But to help those doctors, the IT professionals need to create the software, that will provide the infrastructure, to collect and connect all the data.

This demonstration shows how to develop embedded software using the Rational Rhapsody Architect for Software development environment. The Rational Rhapsody development environment enables developers to visually capture their applications to automate manual coding tasks and communicate their designs. Learn how to import existing C++ code and synchronize it with a UML model, automatically create diagrams to understand the relationships in the code, and then document the design for external reports.
The workflow integration with Eclipse is illustrated by using Rational Rhapsody Architect for Software to turn the code into a simple 'ping pong' console game. It illustrates how, using code centric settings, dynamic synchronization with the code can be achieved, enabling the user to make updates in either the model or the code while still preserving the existing layout and structure. This enables developers to more easily adopt modeling on existing code projects or where preservation of code layout is critical to success.
