Download Description

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) enables streamlining a team's ability to produce a software release. It involves the coordination of software development activities and assets to produce and manage software applications throughout their life cycle. The application lifecycle management packages provide a solution for ensuring ALM best practices in your existing Rational® ClearQuest® 7.0.1 change management system.

The ClearQuest ALM packages provide a role-based process and security model that offers optimal performance. The packages comprise a collection of tightly integrated record types that create a foundation for managing software development projects. With ClearQuest ALM packages:

  • Projects provide a secure and role-based context for completing work
  • Project tasks and activities are traceable to the originating request
  • Baseline and build records provide a traceability link between development and testing
  • Adaptive workflow with process enactment helps govern work according to predefined processes on a project-by-project basis
  • MultiSite and UCM support is enabled, but not required
  • Queries and reports assure completion and quality

The benefits of this package are:
  • A scalable ALM model that can be adapted for small teams as well as for enterprise programs and projects
  • Project teams are empowered to define their own vocabulary and processes without impacting the schema
  • Emphasis is placed on "configuring" the solution rather than designing from the ground up
  • Support team members can be distributed in multiple geographic locations


Rational ClearQuest V7.0.1 must be installed before applying the ClearQuest ALM package schemas.
