http://ibm.com/rational/announce/smartproducts/ IBM Fellow Grady Booch discusses how the trend towards developing “smarter products” is mandating a new approach to systems engineering. Manufactured products are converging with information technology to form revolutionary ecosystems that are permanently changing how we work, live and play. In what might be described as a “new era of client-server,” the client may be a car, airplane, cell phone, medical device, game system, or smart meter, where the software capabilities in the “client” are integrated with the product’s mechanical, electrical, and electronic engineering design.

Knowing the proper information--so that stakeholders and engineering on a project are on the same page--having the facts to make faster, better business decisions, and being able to see all this data can make a business more competitive. Rational software can help businesses find insight and tie the development process to best practices and business results.

He proceeds to talk about the Rational tools and how they help developers from requirements all the way through testing.

Smarter products are requiring developers to create more complex software, so tools like requirements management and testing software are becoming more integral. New software development processes are increasingly including customer input, so the product and the customer are entwined throughout the product lifecycle.

The company uses IBM products for its development, and by working with IBM Business Partners, its development team is able to find solutions to manage the develpoment process and meet these deadlines.
http://www.ibm.com/software/rational/info/innovation/?cm_mmc=agus_itesdrat-20090909-usitn220-_-n-_-mn1-_-m Martin Nally of IBM speaks about the changing business models around software creation. There are more outsourcing and co-sourcing arrangements, as well as more development teams that collaborate from different countries. These partnerships create challenges including how to manage communication between teams that are distributed around the world, and how to manage deliverables and contracts across the different partners. Rational products offers tools like source code management systems and requirements management tools to help maintian the integrity of these collaborations.
