Migration Case Study

December 4, 2008

Over at IBM.com, there is this recent case study of an internal community migrating from a legacy asset management repository to Rational Asset Manager.

The IBM Rational® Knowledge Community, an internal IBM community, was established to provide an environment where practitioners in IBM Global Business Services can collaborate and learn how best to deploy IBM Rational software solu­tions. It is a place for IBM employees to build their Rational software skills.

Business need:
To save on the cost of publishing, harvesting and reusing the assets of the Rational Knowledge Community.

IBM Rational Asset Manager software, a collaborative software development asset management solution that gives organizations the ability to manage and govern the design, development and consumption of assets.

IBM Global Business Services has realized a cost savings of more than $50,000 per year; improved the productivity of its software teams by allowing them to more easily locate assets, receive information about them and be notified about new assets; enhanced collaboration across development teams and accelerated application and service delivery by facilitating the gover­nance and reuse of software assets.

    I hope you are going to do a similar task with Telelogic that is now a Rational family member. There is a lot of data that is in Telelogic that should be in RAM – as that is where the infrastructure assets and relationship are best to be maintained and browsed.

    This is an area we are focusing on. Sounds like you are interested in taking enterprise architectures and publishing them to RAM. Similar to what we do today with RSA – RAM plugin?
