Create a new class of smarter products
The key to creating a new class of smarter products that incorporates advances in software, electronics and hardware is to elevate software development to a strategic business process while using systems engineering to integrate your key design disciplines. IBM Rational is helping companies meet the challenges of effective product and systems development by providing a smarter approach to describing, building and validating complex systems and the software that empowers them. This requires integrated requirements management, architecture and design, quality management and team collaboration capabilities to optimize:
Systems engineering - Coordinate multiple engineering disciplines to develop complex products and systems
Real-time and embedded software development - Collaborate across the software development lifecycle to deliver innovative, differentiating functionality through software.
