What:

Why You Need an ALM Data Model: Increasing Visibility and Transparency to Enable Business Agility


Speaker: Dave West, Tasktop


Location: LM-2090




For many organizations, the promise of ALM has been undermined by disconnected tools, processes, organizations and practices. But as organizations pivot business models and deliver faster, the need for ALM is much greater. Increased visibility and flow are the cornerstones to increased business agility. But for many organizations, adopting Agile at the team level has left enterprise ALM in a worse state than before, with teams adopting tools, practices and even process models for their own needs. So how do organizations increase the visibility of software delivery while software is being delivered by a diverse set of project teams, all following slightly different methods and using a variety of tools?




Practicing ALM in a Mixed Lifecycle Tool Environment


Speakers: Nicole Bryan, Tasktop; Gary Cernosek, IBM; Kevin Bauer, IBM


Location: LM-2207




IBM launched the Rational Jazz initiative with a mission for improving collaboration across the software and systems lifecycle. This initiative includes elements from community, architecture and product perspectives. The value of community development can be seen today on Jazz.net, where developers gain insight into products comprising the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM). But the Jazz initiative is larger than Rational itself. The Jazz platform is designed to be open and broader in the scope of capabilities and lifecycle tools. This session will show how the Jazz initiative has evolved to integrate lifecycle tools stemming from a wide range of sources.
