© 2014 IBM Corporation Accelerating Product and Service Innovation | Rational RTC Source Control - How different from ClearCase ? Change-set based SCM – accept / deliver / suspend / resume to flow change-sets across workspaces and streams Repository Workspace – No “checkout” operation. Best practice is that every developer has his/her own repository workspace Process Integration – Access Control by team area / project area – Pre-conditions and Follow-up actions by iteration types – Association to Work Items, Builds Distributed Development – Distributed SCM for network latency What is available only in ClearCase? – Derived Object support / config records / build avoidance – Dynamic view – Multisite – Hard-link 4 Browse http://jazz.net/ for more details!

© 2014 IBM Corporation Accelerating Product and Service Innovation | Rational RTC 5.0 ( Q2 2014 ) and Future Enhancement Priorities Make it ready for mid&large scale deployments Filter uninteresting versions – As a user I would like to import only versions that are less than some number of years old (281520) – As a user I would like to import only latest versions in selected configurations with dependency relationships – As a user I would like to import only version from non-obseleted branches (281519) CQ-enabled UCM migration – Version Importer should add link from imported change-set to work items when CC and CQ are migrated together. (300055) Performance Improvements – [Time Boxed for 5.0] improve performance of Version Importer (299828) Post 5.0 Consideration – UCM Metadata migration : [CCM] Whole UCM PVOB importer (171345) – Verification tool : Make the verification and report tool production ready (261011) Refer ClearCase Importer Backlog for more detail 9
© 2013 IBM Corporation CLM 2014 Continuous Client Feedback Program/CCF Plan Program summary: The Continuous Client Feedback (CCF) Program is a new type of client program created to support the strategy of the continuous delivery model, in place of the Beta Program used in past CLM releases. Who are the target clients: We will leverage an extended client base for discussions of the nature that can be included on jazz.net. If the IBM team needs to discuss future topics beyond jazz.net (i.e., IBM Confidential in nature) we will leverage the clients under NDA agreement only. We will include the following clients: Existing DPP clients More practitioners from the existing DPP companies (administrator, tester, developer, business analyst, scrum master) Previous beta clients, and new clients (with practitioners to participate) How to facilitate feedback: IBM team needs to show clients the new features and improvements. Need to start as early as possible to get design feedback. IBM stakeholders and the clients will drive the need for follow on discussions and reevaluate certain features after including clients’ feedback. The Jazz.net sandbox will be the milestone delivery method to clients who can’t install in their own environments for hands on testing. Obtain client feedback on consumability & quality via hands-on testing of selected milestone(s) Conduct polls along the way, also send a short formal survey before QCert. What is the duration of the program: Goal is to start getting clients engaged with earliest possible milestone agreed to by development team. Will end no later than 2 weeks after eGA, with additional feedback used as input to future release. When to report feedback: Will provide small feedback report for QCert, and provide updates before the program ends. CCF for RTC 5.0: Kick off meeting is planned for the week of March 3rd.
