IBM Rational Asset Manager supports technical managers, analysts, architects, developers, testers, and others in their development reuse activities. Rational Asset Manager is customizable to support the kinds of assets and classifications important to your enterprise, and can be configured through the Rational Asset Manager Web user interface. When Rational Asset Manager is configured, the changes are applied immediately.

Some enterprises need to communicate and discuss the Rational Asset Manager configuration before committing it to the repository. The Rational Asset Manager Configurator provides a way to visualize the Rational Asset Manager configuration in models, allowing them to be shared, discussed, and refined. The models are transformed into an XMI format and imported to configure Rational Asset Manager. The Rational Asset Manager Configurator also builds models from the exported Rational Asset Manager XMI files.
