The IBM® Rational® Quality Management Portfolio presents an array of quality offerings transforming how people work together to deliver enduring software quality as a strategic business competency in order to help customers optimize their investment in software. Software runs every internal and external business process of an organization. Higher quality software generates greater confidence that those business processes will perform as intended and provides competitive, differentiated value for the business. Organizations need to constantly lower cost in the systems and IT department. The IBM Rational Quality Management portfolio reduces the cost of delivering software, improves operational efficiency, and continuously lowers risk.

Overview
Bottom rule

Organizations today face growing pressures to quickly deliver high-quality software that is aligned with business objectives and outcomes. Some of the pressures include: increasing need to drive innovation while managing risk (CEO Study 2008); software as a force behind innovation; delivering more with the same or even fewer resources, working in teams that are becoming even more geographically distributed; reducing the carbon footprint; expanding view of quality to include requirements, code, security, compliance, and legal, all in a changing and increasingly complex global environment; and shifting computing paradigms and adherence to organizational standards without having the processes defined or documented.

  • Market conditions are increasingly forcing quicker time to market, innovative thinking, and competitive pricing. Outcomes are measured in dollars, in customer retention, and in market share.
  • Software today runs most external and internal business processes. When software fails or doesn't perform, a business lets down its customers, stakeholders, employees, and ultimately, their brand.
  • Business wants to innovate in order to compete but the IT and systems teams struggle with multiple stakeholder demands, delivering high quality and cost effective processes to fulfill that challenges.

The Quality Management portfolio responds to these pressures by delivering innovation directly into the hands of software quality teams, helping them to achieve greater value and performance from their global investments in software.

  • Mitigate business risk: Catch defects earlier and keep the team in synch with dynamic process and activity-based workflows
  • Improve operational efficiency: Automate labor-intensive lifecycle processes and determine optimal plans addressing a wide range of platforms and requirements
  • Gain greater visibility: Make reliable decisions with constant access to prioritized metrics tailored for individuals and teams
  • Deliver greater predictability: Adopt successful deployment patterns and map to operational KPIs

The cornerstone of the new portfolio is IBM Rational Quality Manager family of products. Based on the open, extensible Jazz™ technology platform, IBM Rational Quality Manager delivers a web-based centralized test management environment and provides out-of-the-box integrations to other IBM Rational Quality Management products including IBM Rational Test Lab Manager, IBM Rational Functional Tester V8.0, IBM Rational Performance Tester V8.0, and IBM Rational Service Tester for SOA Quality V8.0, among others across the broader quality management delivery lifecycle that includes IBM Rational RequisitPro V7.1 and IBM Rational Test Realtime V7.5.

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, or later, for recording functional test scripts on any Windows applications.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio.Net 2003, Standard Edition or Professional Edition, with VB.NET Project support for .Net 2003 scripting.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio.Net 2005, Standard Edition or Professional Edition, with VB.NET Project support for .Net 2005 scripting.
  • For Linux: The GNU Image Manipulation Program Toolkit (GTK+), Version 2.2.1, or later, and associated libraries (GLib, Pango).
  • One of the following Web browsers to view the readme files and the installation guide, and to support the Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) browser widget:
    • For Windows: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 with Service Pack 1, or later
    • Mozilla 1.6, or later
    • Firefox 1.0.x, 1.5, 2.0, or later
      Notes:
      • On Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Version 4.0, you must set the environment variable MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME to the folder containing your Firefox or Mozilla installation. For example, setenv MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME /usr/lib/firefox-1.5.
      • To support the SWT browser widget, your Firefox browser must have been compiled with linkable Gecko libraries. Firefox downloads from mozilla.org currently do not satisfy this criteria, but Firefox installations that are included in major Linux distributions often do.
    Note: The Launchpad does not support Mozilla 1.6; if your browser is Mozilla, you need version 1.7, or later, to run the launchpad

Note: Functional Tester Extension for Terminal-based Application installs the IBM SWT HA Beans feature of IBM Host On-Demand in the system. If the latest version of IBM Host On-Demand is available in the system, the Extension for Terminal-based Application uses the IBM SWT HA Beans feature that is already installed. Do not uninstall the IBM Host On-Demand because the Extension for Terminal-based Application requires it.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server's activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program's License Information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/ pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

To calculate the exact PVU entitlements required for the program, go to

https://www-112.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage/ valueunitcalculator/vucalc.wss

Server

Server is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions in the server on which the program runs or each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

Authorized user

Authorized user is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An authorized user is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each authorized user 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.

Floating user

You may utilize the program, including installation of the program on multiple servers, provided that use of the program occurs via a license server, and the total number of concurrent users does not exceed the total number of floating user licenses obtained for the program.

Warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
Authorization for use on home/portable computer
