Work Smarter with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 12:00:00 EDT

Poor requirements management is among the significant contributing factors in the failure of a project. Improper requirements management can lead to disconnected teams, wasted time, out-of-control costs and unsatisfied customers. If you use documents, spreadsheets, emails, wikis and other conventional office and productivity tools to keep track of your business, customer or product requirements, you could be putting your project at risk. With proper requirements management solution implementation, development costs can be reduced by up to 57%, time to market accelerated by up to 20%, and cost of quality lowered by up to 69%. Speaker, Morgan Brown, Global Enablement Leader for requirements management solutions at IBM Rational.

Using Continuous Engineering to Unlock Engineering Knowledge

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:00:00 EDT

Continuous Engineering is an enterprise capability that speeds delivery of increasingly sophisticated and connected products by helping businesses to evolve their engineering practices to adapt to the accelerating pace of business change. Continuous engineering isn’t “continuous” in the sense that it is never ending. Rather, it addresses the ever present need to rethink, redesign, reintegrate and reinnovate products and systems. It is about helping engineers work in the ways that they want to work—with easy access to all the tools, data and expertise they need to do their jobs better.One of the key practice areas within Continuous Engineering is focused on unlocking access to and understanding of engineering knowledge and information, regardless of source, to enable the right decisions at the right times. The ability to unlock engineering knowledge helps engineers and product developers turn insight into outcomes. Speakers, Steve Shoaf and Kimberly Gist

Innovate 2014: DevOps in the Cloud

Tue, 27 May 2014 12:30:00 EDT

Developers have a lot to worry about when developing an app. They need a physical place to run on, they need to configure it plus they need the middleware and software to run on it. Now some of these things can be found on the cloud so a developer can jump right into their coding. SoftLayer provides the infrastructure and a virtual system. BlueMix takes care of everything from virtualizing a system to providing a database service. And, IBM DevOps Services can help by providing development and test teams an open, integrated DevOps solution in the cloud for building mobile and cloud apps and deploying them in IBM BlueMix. With DevOps Services, developers can just jump right into the coding and not worry about setting up the infrastructure or framework for planning, tracking, source control, build, and deployment -- everything is right there! Including complementary IBM Mobile Quality Assurance to help you capture tester and live-user experience for building great mobile apps. At innovate you learn all about it in several sessions in the cloud and mobile tracks. You can also stop by our hands-on kiosk in the Solution EXPO and try it out for yourself -- play with sample apps, create a project, or check out trending public projects.

Death to Manual Deployments

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 09:00:00 EDT

Do your software projects stumble over the deployment hurdle? If so, you are not alone. Many software projects struggle achieving consistent deployment across their environments -- from Test to UAT to Staging to Production. Successful deployments must account for differences between environments; coordinate development teams and environment owners; balance schedule pressures; and create the requisite audit trail. When these challenges are compounded by error prone, inconsistent and inefficient manual processes, achieving a consistent deployment can seem impossible. The cost of this struggle is lost time, late breaking defects, and uncertainty. In this podcast, we go beyond the whys of consistent automated deployments and examine best practices, helpful tools and common pitfalls encountered when seeking consistent deployments across environments. Speakers, Eric Minick and Kimberly Gist.

Turning data into knowledge for competitive advantage - How to deliver smarter product development

Wed, 22 Jan 2014 13:20:00 EDT

Historically, product development has been very engineering-centric, starting with concept design and ending with release to manufacturing. Leading manufacturers, however, are questioning whether this is where product development should really start and end. While the engineering activity has typically focused on optimizing product functionality according to a given set of requirements, the question remains as to the origin of these requirements. In fact, if you can learn more about the specific requirements by better understanding customer sentiment and market trends, you can build a better product. If you can learn more about how your product actually behaves while in service, you know specifically about how it can be improved. And if you know more about how all the systems within your product work together, you can design it better. This podcast outlines how knowledge about customers, operations, and your development process can help you achieve smarter product development. Speakers, Steve Shoaf and Kimberly Gist.

Why Agile and DevOps are important for CSPs

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 15:10:00 EDT

Communications service providers (CSPs) have a history of adopting agile methods in their development of software-intensive products. However, the adoption of these methods, especially when continuous integration is involved, are impeded with old approaches to the deployment of these solutions to test labs and, finally, to the running system. In addition, test labs are expensive to setup and run and their preparation and usage can be restricted and time consuming. As well, the ability to respond in a timely manner to requests from the operations group can be impacted. This can lead to issues with customer satisfaction and reduced ARPU. In this podcast, we will discuss some approaches that help with this situation. Speakers, Neil LeBlanc, Steven J. Weaver, and Kimberly Gist.
