Go2Group’s newest ConnectALL release, Version 2.2, adds compatibility with IBM’s Rational Team Concert (RTC) 6.x, extending RTC’s defects and requirements capabilities to other Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) systems.The new version of ConnectALL will enable organizations currently using RTC to transparently integrate it into existing ALM systems. Organizations looking to add RTC to their application development environments can be assured that it will integrate with the current supported tools via ConnectALL.
In Part One of this series, I described the problems that many modern enterprises, with multiple teams, are currently facing. Each team – Project Management, Development, Testing, Management, and others are using their own tools. This approach may work for them, but in many cases communication between the groups is difficult, if not virtually impossible.
The following is distilled from a three-hour workshop that I presented at IBM Connect 2015 titled “ALM Migration and Integration Workshop”:
The following updates are included in version 2.1 of the ConnectALL ALM Router:
IT integration has two major forms: application integration and data integration. To understand the two and what they mean for your business, it is necessary to learn about their history, the technologies they are based on, what each one is meant to accomplish, and their future.
ConnectALL ALM Router 2.0 supports Jira 7 and Rational ClearCase, adds enhancements
Because Go2Group’s ConnectALL ALM Router unifies many ALM tools, we see it all! And even as newer tools emerge, we see IBM Rational DOORS live on at Fortune 50 manufacturers. It’s a challenge — DOORS is not for the weak or timid! It takes some effort to get set up and configured correctly. Managing changes to DOORS is very difficult. Security can be a nightmare. So once it’s working, who wants to mess with it?
The use of multiple application lifecycle management (ALM) systems can lower user productivity and create errors. There are several ways to connect and integrate multiple ALM systems. Here’s a list of integration options for unifying multiple ALM systems, in the fashion of a military ranking scale. The list begins with the do-nothing, integration-less approach and culminates with the most optimal approach to ALM integration: the enterprise service bus. Rank: Civilian (do nothing) There’s no rule stating that you have to connect and integrate multiple ALM systems! Doing nothing is a no-cost, but no-benefit, approach that leads to ALM islands that do not have the ability …
