Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 21, 2008
Island Training Solutions, Inc. (http://www.islandtraining.com), an IBM Business Partner that sells and supports IBM Rational Software, will offer exclusive test drives of IBM Rational Team Concert.
IBM Rational Team Concert is the first product based on IBM's new--and highly anticipated--Jazz collaboration platform. The tool helps software teams collaborate in real time in the context of specific roles and processes.
Island Training's free test drive is designed to let software developers around the globe see for themselves the team development capabilities of IBM Jazz. Developers participate by connecting--from their own desks--to Island Training's virtual classroom for a remote, hands-on experience led by an Island instructor. There is no software to download and no license required.
"Jazz provides an open and extensible platform on top of which IBM, partners and clients are building new development tools that integrate collaboration, team awareness and project health into every aspect of the development lifecycle," said Brett Hansen, director of business partner marketing, IBM Rational Software. "With the free test drive, Island Training is encouraging early adoption of IBM Rational Team Concert by helping developers get a hands-on feel for the technology and a better understanding of the value their organizations can achieve working in a real time collaborative development environment."
"We have long been excited about Jazz, and it is great fun to be a part of rolling out IBM Rational Team Concert in such an innovative fashion," said Jim Herron, Co-founder and chief technology officer of Island Training Solutions. "Technology has improved to the point where remote training is not only feasible, it is hands down the most efficient and effective way to let participants get their hands on a piece of software while interacting with a live instructor--all from their desks."

- Get started--start Team Concert servers and application
- Work item view--run work item queries and view query results
