The IBM Rational Integrated Development Environment (IDE) offerings are designed to optimize the activities of software design, creation, evolution, initial quality assurance, and maintenance in the context of a DevOps practice. Their purpose is to help you realize the objectives of DevOps, including:

  • Speed: Deliver more, faster.

  • Business agility: Make your developers' skills more portable so that you are able to pivot more quickly in response to rapidly changing business conditions and requirements; provide them with tools for rapidly modernizing heritage systems of record and developing multichannel (mobile) applications that use a wide variety of back-end systems.

  • Efficiency: Eliminate waste, in particular, waste introduced by software defects and inefficient collaboration.

The IDEs provide these high-level capabilities:

  • (Speed, agility) Application comprehension and impact analysis tools that help you make decisions more quickly and shorten learning curves

  • (Speed) Intelligent editors, outline views, content assist, auto- completion, instantaneous syntax validation, context help, and other capabilities that help you implement your decisions more quickly.

  • (Business agility) Tools for developing multitier, multichannel (mobile) enterprise applications that leverage a wide variety of back- end systems.

  • (Business agility) A variety of tools and techniques for maintaining, extending, and modernizing COBOL, RPG, PL/1, EJB, and other applications.

  • (Business agility) A common developer user experience across a breadth of languages, programming models, and platforms.

  • (Efficiency) Initial code quality tools such as code-generating wizards, static code analysis, code coverage analysis, profiling, unit test automation, cross-language/cross-platform debugger and a team debugging capability to help you minimize defect introduction, find introduced defects quickly, and fix them efficiently.

  • (Efficiency) Capabilities to help optimize applications for specific target platforms and middleware, so you can make the most efficient use of infrastructure and maximize your return on investments in it.

  • (Efficiency) Integrations with the broader IBM DevOps solution to provide developers with collaboration tools and visibility to activities and status across the lifecycle from planning and requirements through change and configuration management, downstream testing and deployment, and customer feedback.
