Use Rational Quality Manager in a continuous delivery DevOps pipeline
Automated testing is an important piece of the DevOps continuous delivery pipeline. It's easy enough to write automation test scripts and have them be triggered after a build is installed. It is more difficult to maintain a group of tests to run, the machines to run them on, and a history of the test results. This set of tasks can be daunting if you are using plain ANT and properties files to maintain the inventory.

Use Rational Quality Manager to modularize test scripts
Using a sample scenario in a fictitious JKE banking application, this article shows how to develop keywords and workflows for the banking application.Keywords in Rational Quality Manager make it possible for you to modularize test scripts. A collection of keywords becomes a domain-specific framework you can use to put together high-level scenario flows. Keywords, if defined at the beginning of the project, form a domain-specific framework that makes it possible to focus on writing scenario flows to be tested, without having to worry about duplicating test steps .

Rational tools make testing much easier for IBM Tivoli lab in Rome
Improving product quality is a matter of both team process and the tools that the team uses. In this article, we describe how the IBM Tivoli software lab in Rome migrated from TTT, a Lotus Notes database, and text documents to the software development lifecycle approach by integrating artifacts from the Rational solution to Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM). We describe how we used IBM Rational Team Concert Version 2.0.0.2 and IBM Rational Quality Manager Version 3.0.1.1 to achieve a new day-by-day process. Moreover, adopting those tools made architects, project managers, developers, and testers able to feed and maintain the product artifacts linked together in a centralized way. Product requirements, developed user stories, and test cases are easily traced and tracked within a single point of entry.

Automate tests without compromising coverage of the environment
Automated testing is beneficial compared to manual testing in many ways, such as accuracy, saving time, resource utilization, and early regression detection. However, it is equally important that automated tests are executed in correct test environments, according to the test plan. Failing to do that could lead environment-specific defects to leak to the stakeholders. Pramod Chandoria describes how can you make sure that automated tests run on the correct machine, based on the test environment coverage planned, and mitigate the risk of leaking platform-specific issues. He also explains how to configure, manage, and run automated tests in Rational Quality Manager.

Manage operational requirements for production: Part 1. Four steps to ensure that dev and ops teams agree on nonfunctional requirements
Software requirements are too often automatically identified with user requirements, such as functions related to use cases or performance levels. However, there are other requirements that are often sources of serious problems for production systems, such as number of connections to the database, memory allocation, or coexistence with other, even unrelated, systems. In this two-part article, we show how IBM Rational Requirements Composer enables the collaboration between the Development and the Operation departments to model and track requirements related to the runtime execution of the application and how IBM Rational Quality Manager can be added later to prepare and track the preproduction tests.
