Replacement information

Effective December 9, 2008, IBM will withdraw from marketing IBM Rational Systems Developer (5724-M10) licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement.

The market replacement for IBM Rational Systems Developer is IBM Rational Software Architect Standard Edition (5724-V88). Customers with active maintenance agreements for IBM Rational Systems Developer can migrate to IBM Rational Software Architect Standard Edition V7.5 at no additional cost.

Note: Your next regular renewal notification will quote IBM Rational Software Architect Standard Edition instead of IBM Rational Systems Developer.

The work products of the two offerings (such as UML models) are interoperable. The features and functions of the two offerings are consistent, with two exceptions:

  1. IBM Rational Software Architect Standard Edition, introduces capabilities for operational and deployment modeling based upon the new IBM Rational Deployment Architecture Platform. This is a platform for capturing rich semantic representations of your technical infrastructure, for creating best-practice templates describing your standard technology configurations, and for creating logical operational models that begin to describe the requirements for deploying applications under development. This bridges the Development-Operations communication gap much more effectively than other mediums such as text documents and non-semantic diagrams. This in turn averts deployment failures and last-minute fire drills to reconfigure infrastructure and repackage, or even re-architect, applications. IBM Rational Systems Developer does not include any capabilities for working with these deployment models. As such, this is new value being provided to customers who own IBM Rational Systems Developer.
  2. IBM Rational Systems Developer includes a capability to open business process models created with IBM WebSphere® Business Modeler, and render them as UML Activity models. IBM Rational Software Architect Standard Edition does not include this capability. Customers who currently use this capability in Rational Systems Developer, but do not use capabilities of the product that are related to the C++ or CORBA languages, are encouraged to trade up to IBM Rational Software Architect for WebSphere Software which includes the business modeling integration but does not include support for C++ or CORBA. Customers who currently use both the business model integration capability and C++ or CORBA features are encouraged to trade up to IBM Rational Professional Bundle which includes both IBM Rational Software Architect Standard Edition and IBM Rational Software Architect for WebSphere Software. Those two products can be co-installed, and in that configuration they will provide a seamless user experience that matches or exceeds the full feature set of IBM Rational Systems Developer.
