It’s hard to think of an industry that is not undergoing transformation. Systems space industries including domains like: Banking, Automotive, Aerospace, Defense, and Manufacturing, are all being transformed by the forces of a smarter planet.
By smarter planet we mean the world is becoming:
- Instrumented – Sensors are everywhere, collecting information that can be used in all types of decision making and optimization.
- Interconnected – Everyone and everything are connected. People, products and systems are being connected in new and different ways.
- Intelligent – With all this instrumentation and inter connectivity is the opportunity for intelligence to be infused in all products and systems.
Any project that is taken up by your organization needs the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to see success. Each of these tools requires them to be licensed so that there is an authentic and a transparent way to deliver the project seamlessly. The choice of tools and the licenses involved come at a cost to the organization.
Your organization should be well versed in understanding the costs, and should be looking at a more optimized and flexible way of working around the projects with such tools and the licenses with optimized costs. Licensing can play a large role in the flexibility and affordability of an IT infrastructure. Acquiring, managing, and utilizing software licenses effectively can be costly and time consuming.
A flexible licensing strategy can help your investment in to get can optimal use of rational solutions based on your development life cycle.
Most organizations will use an effective mix of multiple schemes to drive the optimal productivity of their software delivery teams. By using the Rational token licensing model, practitioners can utilize the right Rational tool at the right time during the development life cycle. Rational Tokens allow great flexibility in configuration: allow for current product use as well as factoring additional tools that might be needed later in the life cycle.
Rational Token Licensing helps you become flexible and optimized:
- Flexible use of Rational solutions caters to On Demand Licensing:
Use the right tool at the right time during the life cycle of a development project, Identify the best license fit for a given task or project.
- Streamline License Management and Reduce Shelfware:
Multiple licensing options to your development teams help eliminate the concept of temporarily “unused” software as the project moves from one development phase to the next.
- Optimize and Simplify software license investments for higher ROI:
Replaces a less predictable spending model that has large spikes with a uniform spending model with incremental increases as needed, allows customers the access to specialty software during the project, at optimized costs and provides need based usage.

Hot off the presses, here's a great new whitepaper just released yesterday. This paper is jam packed with info intended to provide you with a comprehensive guide to successfully use the integration between Rational System Architect and All Fusion CA-Erwin:
Title: How to integrate Rational System Architect with CA-Erwin
Author: Rajesh Avanthi
Abstract: This document describes how to integrate IBM Rational System Architect with CA-Erwin modeling tool and will assist in better understanding the metabridge functionalities which supports the export and import of logical data models as well as Physical data models from CA-Erwin to Rational System Architect.
This paper intends to provide you with a comprehensive guide to successfully use the integration between Rational System Architect and All Fusion CA-Erwin. The purpose is to merely serve as an aid in bringing the logical and physical data models from CA-Erwin into Rational System Architect and thus helping you to enhance the modeling designs in Rational System Architect.
From a business perspective, integrating the two major Enterprise Architect applications (Rational System Architect and CA-Erwin) should serve better and provide a strong base for fulfilling the business needs by providing a pathway from strategic enterprise architecture to tangible solution delivery.

A new whitepaper was published today:
Rational Build Forge General Maintenance
Abstract from the paper's introduction section:
This whitepaper is designed as a supplement to the Build Forge Online Help Documentation. This document should not be seen as a replacement for the Online Help Manual. Build Forge Administrators and Release Engineering teams should review this document before making any changes to a new or existing environment. The information supplied is not based on IBM recommendations. This white paper is intended to assist in creating scalable and manageable Build Forge environments. The paper is broken down into individual components due to certain software requirements. Build Forge out of the box requires: Database backend, Java Application Server (Tomcat), Web Server (Apache with PHP), and Precompiled Perl Executables (Perl Engine). Each component has its own unique options when considering management and scalability.
After reviewing this whitepaper, apply changes to a test environment before releasing in production. Some of the topics discussed in this paper result in data removal and aggressive purging. Please note that these topics should be discussed prior to implementation.
