IBM offers a powerful integrated suite for building architectures using standard Architecture Frameworks. IBM solutions enable:
Product solutions for architecture
IBM Rational System Architect
Create architecture models with interactive visualization and analysis. Link, consolidate, and analyze information spanning strategic, operational, systems, services, data, project, and standards views, and utilize Explorer diagrams for fit-for-purpose views. Use Cognos BI 8.4, bundled with SA at no charge, to build analysis dashboards.
IBM Rational System Architect XT
Web-based enterprise architecture solutions that can help improve decision making, suitable for individuals who are looking to leverage the information within the enterprise architecture. Provides a thin-browser live interface to architecture, and SA/Publisher enabling generation of a report-driven website.
IBM Rational Rhapsody
A powerful visual development environment for systems engineers and software developers creating real-time or embedded systems and software using DoDAF, MODAF, sysML, and UPDM. Design to build in Rational Rhapsody, renowned for its comprehensive and proven code generation off UML models.
IBM Rational Software Architect
Design to build IT applications in Rational Software Architect, a state-of-the-art application design tool with a UML profile for DoDAF, providing automatic code generation and reversal for multiple languages.
Product solutions for requirements and planning
IBM Rational DOORS
Requirements management, traceability, and impact analysis capabilities for more formal, rigorous requirements engineering purposes. Tight integrations are provided with IBM Rational's architecture modeling tools.
IBM Rational Focal Point
Perform better decision analysis, portfolio analysis, and planning -- a tight integration with System Architect enables you to bring architecture information into Focal Point, and link it with non-architectural information (such as costs, bandwidth, priorities, ratings, etc). This enables objective project and portfolio analysis leading to better decisions supported by solid analysis.
