Katur stopped by this afternoon to show off his new Redbook: Collaborative Application Lifecycle Management with IBM Rational Products, written in collaboration with other good peeps, several of which I've had the pleasure of working with. Katur Patel and Brianna Smith currently work in Rational Client Support.
It's 600+ pages of fun and excitement featuring Build Forge, ClearCase, ClearQuest, ReqPro, and introducing Rational Quality Manager, Rational Requirements Composer Rational Software Analyzer and Rational Team Concert.
From the back cover:
In this book, we provide a reference scenario and tool architectures for deploying the new IBM Rational products into an existing enterprise environment. We also provide a set of blueprints that define each of the key disciplines in the development life cycle to help you understand the domain and how the Rational products support the need of that discipline. Our primary focus is to highlight the value of CALM by providing a user view of the solution that is used to support a distributed enterprise development team that incorporates aspects of the "Agility-at-Scale" approach.

PUBLISHED: White paper: ClearCase Multisite Replica Recovery in secure one-way synchronization environments
ClearCase MultiSite environments that synchronize data in one directionrequire special handling during the planning and implementation ofbackup and recovery procedures for replicated VOBs. One-waysynchronizations are often mandatory in secure environments where datacan’t be transferred out from a secure server.
A big thank you to Karl Weinert, Brian Cowan and Denise McKinnon for writing and publishing this whitepaper!
This white paper helps to further explain what is needed to implement asuccessful backup and recovery strategy for sites that synchronizereplicas in a one-way sync pattern.
