The 2009 Rational Software Conference kicked off in Orlando, Florida, yesterday, and IBM has begun to make a series of key announcements in the software development space at the event.
Let's set the scene.
In this economic climate, making uninformed decisions can lead to costly mistakes that businesses can't afford to fix, and yet 77% of managers continue to be aware of bad decisions being made due to a lack of accurate information.
To stem this tide, organizations need to increasingly view their investments in software as strategic business assets, and therefore make better informed decisions on the current status of these software projects and the evolving needs of their businesses.
With these client needs in mind, IBM has introduced IBM Rational insight, a new investment and project management solution.
This product was designed to help business leaders measure and manage team performance and project results across an organization.
Built atop IBM Cognos software, IBM Rational Insight provides metrics and dashboards that help companies find and focus on cros
It can also help ensure the right people are collaborating, and then take real-time action to help continuously improve results.
IBM also introduced a new beta program, IBM Rational Focal Point for Project Managment. This is a new solution designed to reduce the delays and mistakes that hinder software projects from meeting the needs of the business.
