IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) Sales and Support
For improved collaboration and teamwork during the software development process, IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) provides a scalable and extensible Change and Configuration Management (CCM) solution. As part of the IBM Rational family of products, IBM RTC assists agile development teams to plan, manage, track, and share work throughout the lifecycle. With features that include process definition, change control, task tracking and build automation, IBM RTC ensures teams work together to deliver better software systems efficiently and release more frequently.
Project delivery cycles benefit from a central, comprehensive team orchestration solution. The IBM RTC platform is process driven, adapting to any type of development workflow implemented at an organization. While remaining highly customizable, IBM RTC makes task iterations possible and allow for concurrent development practices without compromising the codebase’s quality.
IBM RTC Delivers Complete Development Orchestration
As a complete, end-to-end development lifecycle solution, IBM RTC provides all the elements required to ensure teams collaborate continuously. IBM RTC ensures information exchanges and task handoffs between functional units retain the necessary context within the integrated environment.
IBM RTC Collaboration and Integration Features
Team views provide members with the information needed to remain productive. For changes and feature requests, chat sessions help teams discuss, analyze, and define the requirements easily. If any requirement changes, automatic notifications inform everyone involved ensuring teams can adapt quickly with minimal process disruptions.
Using relationships between artifacts, the entire development lifecycle is accessible from a single location. With IBM RTC, teams are able to perform agile planning, defect tracking, build and release management as well as build and test automation. With added reporting features and process definition capabilities, teams naturally comply with every portion of the business models and rules established.
IBM RTC Configuration and Change Management Features
Process definitions drive every step of work execution in IBM RTC. No matter what the development workflow of the organization, a centralized process control solution enables universal compliance within the company and teams. The IBM RTC process management features use roles, practices, permissions, and rules to enforce the company workflow from start to finish during the entire software development lifecycle.
IBM RTC includes built-in source control for version tracking, as well as change management components that tracks every aspect of the software development workflow. IBM RTC routes work items to individuals, record changes and comments, trigger approval requests, and provide build automation and testing from a single location.
Work items are objects that can include:
- Enhancement Requests
Collaborative Lifecycle Management in IBM RTC
As a completely integrated Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution, IBM RTC ensures accurate execution and processing of every task related to the software build and release process. Artifacts include configuration definitions, versions information, requirement specifications, and test plans. While design items flow through the different lifecycle stages, IBM RTC records the complete audit history of each artifact.
Team performance and SCM baselines provide insight into process efficacy and assists with accurate reporting on the status of the entire project. Integrated with Requirements Management and Quality Management solutions, IBM RTC ensures the entire project works together to deliver better code releases more frequently and reliably.
Improve Process Oversight and Control with IBM RTC
Real-time status reporting and dashboards provide teams and management with accurate information regarding the project’s execution. IBM RTC sources data from all the artifacts across the Application Lifecycle (ALC) and other integrated solutions, structuring information into actionable knowledge. When activities drag, team leads know early and thus can intervene accordingly.
IBM RTC includes web, Visual Studio, and Eclipse-based client interfaces, allowing teams to access work from any type of platform. With additional interfaces available, command line and shell operations assist teams to perform source control tasks quickly and easily.
