Overview

Organizations today face growing pressures to quickly deliver high-quality software that is aligned with business objectives. Some of the pressures include:

  • Delivering more with same or even fewer resources
  • Working in teams that are becoming even more geographically distributed
  • Adhering to organizational standards without having the processes defined or documented

IBM Rational® Team Concert drives software innovation through collaboration, transforming how people, especially those who have project-distributed teams, work together to develop and deliver software in an increasingly agile manner. IBM Rational Team Concert connects dispersed development teams to increase individual and team productivity, compress development cycles, and deliver high-quality software fast.

Description

Based on the open and extensible Jazz platform, IBM Rational Team Concert empowers software teams to collaborate in real time in the context of specific roles and processes — delivering new levels of productivity, agility, and innovation.

IBM Rational Team Concert integrates source control, work item, and build management into a single application. It enables distributed teams spread throughout your enterprise to more effectively collaborate in developing and delivering quality software on time and on budget.

  • Software configuration management: IBM Rational Team Concert delivers essential software version control, workspace management, and parallel development support to individuals and teams. Specific functions include:
    • Developer-to-team flow
    • Integrated stream management
    • Component-level baselines
    • Server-based sandboxes
    • Components identified in streams and available baselines
    • ClearCase® Connector for Standard Edition
  • Work item management: IBM Rational Team Concert supports different types of work items for software development teams. Team members can discuss about a particular work item; discussions are captured for later reference. Work item owners or interested parties can subscribe and receive notifications via RSS/Atom feeds. Team members can share queries with the team or with particular users. Functions include:
    • Defects, enhancements, and conversations
    • Query results view and share queries with team or member
    • Support for approvals and discussions
    • ClearQuest® Connector for Standard Edition
    • Query editor interface
  • Build management: IBM Rational Team Concert enables efficient scheduling and execution of software build processes. You can leverage multiple servers for rapid, cross-platform build processing and create a detailed bill of materials to guarantee build reproducibility. Additional functions include:
    • Work item and change set traceability
    • Local or remote build servers
    • Support for Ant and command line tools
    • Build definitions for team and private builds
    • Integration with IBM Rational Build Forge for all editions

IBM Rational Team Concert helps you gain the cross-organizational visibility and collaboration you need to succeed.

  • Process automation and guidance: Enforcement of agreed-upon standards can help ensure higher-quality results. Because not all organizations are the same, rules are configurable and can be defined or refined as needed, enabling continuous improvement.
  • In-context collaboration: Through personal customizable views, team members can gain better understanding of what's happening on projects (news and events, build status, what's being worked on, and changes). Team members can also be made aware of what their teammates are working on and who is online and possibly available to collaborate with.
  • Web client: Leveraging AJAX technology, users experience a rich client style of interaction for Web access. External stakeholders or occasional users can gain access to data without a rich client.
  • Dashboards and reporting: Project, individual, and team dashboards offer accurate project health information drawn directly from ongoing work, replacing tedious and time-consuming reporting overhead.

IBM Rational Team Concert includes a complete set of integrated functionality to enable teams to effectively deliver software on time and on budget:

  • Integrated iteration planning and execution
  • Real-time project status window
  • Single structure for project-related artifacts
  • World-class team on-boarding and off-boarding, including team membership, subteams, and project inheritance
  • Role-based operational control for flexible definition of process and capabilities
  • Team advisor for defining and refining rules and enabling continuous improvement
  • Process enactment and enforcement
  • In-context collaboration showing team members and work status
  • Customizable project dashboard
  • Real-time reporting and queries

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single proof of entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Charge metrics definitions

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A PoE must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Install with 3 Authorized Users

"Install with 3 Authorized Users" is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A copy or instance of the program may be installed in the enterprise and may be accessed by three authorized users. An authorized user is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. A PoE must be obtained for every copy or instance of the program installed in the enterprise and accessed by three authorized users
