SCOTT – Introduction
Hi, I’m Scott Hebner, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy for IBM Rational, and I’m excited to announce two new products that represent another evolutionary step for Rational, this time in the areas of Requirements and Quality Management
These two major new products, Rational Requirements Composer and Rational Quality Manager significantly extend our customers ability to dynamically align quality with business goals through concept and requirements elaboration, reuse of test assets, and painless governance to eliminate manual overhead. This helps customers improve business & stakeholder satisfaction by allowing organizations to better envision the outcomes they are driving to, and then controlling the testing and quality processes required to get there.
So let me talk about these next-generation products we are announcing, and how they enable better alignment for your organization around Requirements Driven Software Quality.
• Rational Requirements Composer is a collaborative requirements definition toolset that enables stakeholders and IT to collaborate in context and build consensus around software and system requirements. Using business process sketches, storyboards, User Interface sketches and other techniques, teams can elicit, enhance, and connect their ideas to form requirements that truly align the business and software delivery teams.
• IBM Rational Quality Manager is a business-driven software quality portal that provides a collaborative and customizable platform for test planning, workflow control, tracking and metrics reporting capable of quantifying how project decisions and deliverables impact and align with business objectives.
These two tools working together empower stakeholders and the business to get on the same page faster, and drive quality outcomes that drive business results.
I hope you are as excited as I am about these two new offerings, and will take the time to look them up online and download them for a test drive. Thank you choosing IBM Rational to transform how your people work together to achieve winning business results from software.
