What are the current IBM/Rational offerings?

Arthur Adams asked on August 24, 2017 - 8:11am | Replies (0).

I've used Ratiional ClearCase and ClearQuest in the past, but it's been a long time - at least seven years since I used CQ, and probably a decade since I used CC. On a project where we used both, I had them integrated. (I used them enough to refer to them collectively as "ClearWaste".)

I'm currently tasked with evaluating various CM-related suites for where I'm working now, and I'm finding it very confusing to determine just what IBM is currently offering.

I see ClearCase and ClearQuest are still sold. Are they actively supported?

Overcome Test Automation Plateaus with Service Virtualization

Summary:
With complex enterprise test automation systems, at least some of the many required dependencies are commonly incomplete, unavailable, or operating incorrectly at the time of test execution. The result is timeouts, incomplete tests, false positives, and inaccurate results. Service virtualization can help you overcome this plateau and increase test automation rates.

Teach DevOps Software Development with a Game

Summary:
The core idea of DevOps is the various roles working together to create a stable software system. People can hear that, or read about it, or even observe it, but often, the best way for a team new to DevOps to understand it is to just do it. When you're starting out, that can lead to failures on a real system, so a simulation is a good idea. Try playing a game to introduce your team to DevOps.

The Value of Making Your Data Sources Reusable across Test Automation Tools

Summary:
Many automation tools have a mechanism for storing data used in their test scripts. Typically, the specifics of this mechanism is different across tools, making it difficult to use this data outside the tool itself. Using an external, reusable data source allows organizations to avoid the cost of migrating or duplicating existing data, thereby future-proofing their frameworks.

Remove mercurial subrepos and move it to main repository. Please suggest the good way to perform the same?

Am working in a old project which has many hg subrepos which seems to be problematic. Am planning to remove subrepos and move to main repository. Is there any better approach to do the same or any tools? Also want to maintain the same metadata and not interested to add all subrepo as single commit to main repository.
