Edit Baseline Dependencies Support in ClearTeam Explorer (v188.8.131.52) - This video demonstrates the Edit Baseline dependencies feature in ClearTeamExplorer client. If your team or organization works on multiple components, it is always an efficient practice to use a composite baseline to represent the project's configuration rather than keeping track of a set of baselines for each component. A pure composite baseline is generally recommended.

Our friends over at Jazz.net have a great new video tour of Rational Requirements Composer Beta 2a and Lifecycle Linking.
We examine in this video some of the latest capabilities provide in
Rational Requirements Composer (RRC) Beta 2a, including comment
navigation, editing rich text, use cases, user-interface sketches and
business process diagrams. From the dashboard, we also have viewlets
that show the lifecycle status of the implementation of requirements, in
Rational Team Concert (RTC) and validation using Rational Quality
Manager (RQM) test cases. These requirements are also viewed as
lifecycle links, in both the implementation and test plans.
Host Stephen Baker, author of "Man v. Machine," discusses Watson's performance on Jeopardy!, and the possible real-world applications of this technology with a panel of experts. The panel includes: IBM Watson Principal Investigator Dr. David Ferrucci, IBM Fellow and CTO of IBM's SOA Center for Excellence Kerrie Holley and Columbia University Professor of Clinical Medicine Dr. Herbert Chase.
I highly recommend taking the 33 minutes and watching this panel discussion. Some amazing bits of information about Watson's early beginnings, challenges, and what the future may hold. Exciting stuff!
And how about some other links about IBM's Watson while we're at it... lots of great info here:
How is @IBMWatson so fast at ringing in, and is it an unfair advantage? Q&A with a Watson engineer - http://bit.ly/gaBFnX via @wired
As you digest all the information from the links above, I'll leave you with this: Jim Powers, a Worldwide Technical Enablement Lead for IBM Software Group, Sales, gave us some fun and interesting insights after Wednesday night's final Jeopardy! game.
"I had the privilege of attending the Littleton lab event last night to watch Watson kick some (very smart) human butt with 300+ of my colleagues and their families. I was both impressed and proud (as was the rest of the audience), as we watched a machine about the size of several refrigerators make television history.
However, I then realized something: Watson represents what social learning is all about!
How? - Watson is NOT intelligent. Watson cannot exercise critical thinking, or make autonomous judgments outside of its programming. What Watson does do very well is make very good use of all the existing, collective human knowledge in the world to process and produce answers very quickly. Isn't this what social learning, and Lotus Communities are all about?
I started to daydream a bit how Watson's Q&A technology can benefit the world. It made me really proud. But I also feel that we, as a community who all feel strongly about social business and social learning, are working toward the same goal - one community and one organization at a time.
Soon, I hope we get to see Watson solving lots of our world's challenges. For now, I hope that we can gain good momentum and be successful at building a similar machine today - made up of real humans - by way of communities, blogs, and tagging."
Some great food for thought there, Jim... This week has truly been ground breaking for our understanding of what natural language processing can accomplish. I can't wait to see where this technology takes us in the future, both from the machine perspective personified by Watson, but also from the social-learning and social business perspective as Jim outlined. Exciting times!
This one-day course provides an introduction to IBM Rational Team Concert 2.0 using the Eclipse client. Team members learn to join a project, set up their local and repository workspaces, use work items and Jazz source control to manage changes, and understand some of the project reporting and monitoring capabilities of Rational Team Concert.
Another brief video will show
you how you can use the drop downs menus in the navigation bar to create
resources or access existing resources, search for resources with quick search,
track resources available from the drop down menus and the mini dashboard, and
use the Home menu to switch between projects within the same or different
functionality is implemented or what existing code may be relevant for
understanding and implementing a work item can be difficult using conventional
search technologies. A developer may need to already be highly familiar with
existing details such as code organization and naming conventions to be able to
use regular expression and other wild-card style searches effectively. In large
projects such searches may not be practical, and the developer instead relies on
acquired insight. Context-Aware Search enables searching using natural language
rather than exact patterns. This capability allows analysis of a work item for
relevant keywords. Using these keywords it then locates source code that may be
relevant for the work item.
