Welcome to my Blog!


Since I have joined the IBM Jazz Jumpstart team, I’ve been encouraged to start this blog.  This will give me the opportunity to share tips and tricks with you that will help you make the best use of IBM Rational’s Jazz suite of products.  In particular, I am excited about the upcoming release of our Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution, version 3.0.1.  You can get more information and get just as excited by visiting the central location for ‘all things Jazz’:  a.k.a Jazz.net. This new release will simplify the way Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager and Rational Requirements Composer (the 3 original Jazz-based products) work together to help teams improve their productivity across the application lifecycle.

My initial focus will be on the following topics: Upgrade, RRC v3.0.1 new features and the Reporting capabilities built-in to the CLM solution.
