Jazz & CLM Overview

The Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management is a set of seamlessly integrated tools that work together to improve solution delivery. Full lifecycle traceability improves quality by understanding the relationships between artifacts across all disciplines. It allows teams to find and close traceability gaps to ensure full coverage across requirements, design, development, and test. A level of transparency is provided that enables everyone to make informed decisions based on business priorities.

In this presentation, Carson Holmes, will show how Requirements Composer, Team Concert, and Quality Manager can be used together to realize full lifecycle traceability. He will show how lifecycle projects can be administered and review a number of features and usage scenarios for CLM. He will also review the other products available on the Jazz platform and how these various Rational tools complement each other.
