Case Studies in the Use of Rational Jazz for Systems and Software Development_SUM
Embedded systems have been growing in complexity for decades. Engineers rely increasingly on efficient tools and processes to manage interactions and provide systems engineering solutions that regularly cross domain boundaries. As numerous end-users confirmed in interviews, IBM Rational tools based on Jazz, centered on Rational Team Concert, solve many issues in systems development. Jazz is IBM Rational's open enterprise platform for data integration and collaboration among tools. This publication highlights leading users who are leveraging IBM Rational solutions for the execution of embedded systems development. It confirms the strength and potential for the platform and introduces Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC), which provides integration potential by offering standards-based definitions of interfaces to data leveraged throughout the development lifecycle.
