Jazz Community Contributions

The Jazz Community starts sharing their tools here: http://jazz-community.org/. The code for their tools can be found here.

There is a very active Jazz user community of members of several companies in Europe that are heavily using the Jazz products such as Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager and Doors Next Generation.

The community members try to meet to share their experience with using, administrating and running the Jazz tools in their environments. It became clear that the different companies and community members face similar challenges and that it would be beneficial if they could share tools they created to make running such an environment easier.

The community has now started sharing their tools in this community project and in this code repository.


Some of the tools have already been shared on other sites. I have linked the ones I am aware of to the Interesting links page in the ‘Extensions Provided by the Community’ section. These are the ones I am aware of (and the code for some of them is already available in the community repository):

I am looking forward to see more community created tools soon. Visit the community to find out what they have to offer. The code for their tools can be found here.

Last but not least, a special thanks to Dani for getting this awesome user groups started and for the members of said community for their spirit, engagement and willingness to contribute and help each other. You know whom I address here!


Upgrading your CLM system? – Definitive checklist.

Upgrading the IBM CLM solution is sometimes received as complex and users struggle with it. Yesterday I was notified that there was a blog from a colleague providing a check list that helps making this easier and more likely successful. I thought this is worth reblogging to make it easier to find.

Please find the information in Paul’s blog post Upgrading your CLM system? – Definitive must-read checklist just published. The link points to our Deployment Wiki which is always worth looking at for all things related to deployment, install, setup and configuration.
