Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Arcisphere Technologies, a booming new entrant to the IBM Rational Consulting industry in the mid-Atlantic region, is seeing a marked increase in demand for top-tier IBM Rational consulting services after IBM’s recent announcement of new cloud-based IBM Rational features and the release of an independent research report citing the effectiveness of IBM Rational for improving customers’ software development methodologies.
In early June, IBM announced a new version of their Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) software which is based on the Jazz platform and combines a host of IBM Rational products – including IBM Rational Team Concert , IBM Rational Requirements Composer, and IBM Rational Quality Manager – into one simple-to-install solution. With this new release, IBM is also focusing on bringing cloud-based solutions that will enable companies to implement more agile and cost effective development, testing, and delivery. New offerings include the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise cloud-based dev and test infrastructure and a pilot of the IBM SmartCloud Application Services pay-as-you-go design/development/build/test/deploy coordination service.
IBM’s announcement came on the heels of the release of results from a research study that rated IBM Rational users as, “more satisfied with its features and capabilities than users of any other major software development platform.” The research was conducted by Evans Data as part of their annual User's Choice Software Development Platform survey, which includes over 1200 developers. IBM Rational topped several categories, including application modeling, parallel programming, multiple-server support and remote development. IBM Rational also earned the best overall score to beat out eight other major competitors, including Microsoft Visual Studio, NetWeaver, JDeveloper, and others.
The results came as no surprise to the software life cycle management experts at Arcisphere Technologies, many of whom are former IBM Rational engineers with over 20 years of experience in the industry. Arcisphere provides support for users of the IBM Rational product suite through hands-on consulting, mentoring, and training services, and is adept at helping clients to identify and apply the right combination of IBM Rational products to maximize productivity and guarantee a more efficient and higher quality development cycle.
With highly trained IBM Rational specialists staffed in offices throughout the mid-Atlantic region from New York to DC, Arcisphere has seen a significant surge in the demand for IBM Rational consulting and training following the announcements of IBM’s new features and the research results supporting the Rational line’s effectiveness. According to one senior company official, “Companies are doing anything they can to get ahead in today’s ultra-competitive market, and they see these new offerings from IBM as a way to get that edge. Our mission is to make sure they get the most out of their IBM Rational investment and reap those rewards.”
Arcisphere welcomes inquiries and is prepared to assist clients on-site, over the phone, and online with custom-tailored IBM Rational implementation plans to streamline the software development life cycle.
