If you are attending IBM Interconnect, we encourage you to attend the following sessions:
1) Title: DTA-3268: How Nationwide and Tasktop Achieved Continuous Visibility across the DevOps Lifecycle
Who: Carmen DeArdo, Nationwide Insurance, and Mik Kersten, Tasktop
When: Monday, Feb. 22, 2016: 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Where: Mandalay Bay SOUTH
Session Description: When Nationwide embarked on a DevOps transformation journey, the goal of automating build and release practices was a “no brainer.” The surprise that emerged during the journey was the need to automate the processes that drove the development, release and support processes. Multiple processes and sources of work existed across development, project management and IT service management, and all were disconnected. This talk overviews the conceptual framework that Nationwide and Tasktop created to provide end-to-end “continuous visibility” across the DevOps lifecycle. It reviews the detailed implementation of the solution, which leverages IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) and IBM UrbanCode as the integration hub.
2) Title: DOD-3557: Connecting Heterogeneous Tools in a DevOps World with Rational Lifecycle Integration Adaptor
Who: Trevor Bruner, Tasktop, and Jared Pulham, IBM
When: Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016. 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Where: Mandalay Bay SOUTH - Lagoon E
Session Description: Cross-department communication and information flow and is key to successfully building software. Too often organizations rely on email chains and spreadsheets. Hear how IBM’s Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapter has evolved to help companies break these barriers. Encouraging better team collaboration and project information awareness across all these tools gives project teams the best chance for success and delivery outcome. With Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapter, your team members get the information they need in the tool they are most comfortable with. Learn how you can connect your development tools using a combination of OSLC and traditional REST services to let your people stay in their tool of choice and still communicate.
3) Title: DOD-2925: Integrate All Your SDLC Tools for Complete DevOps Visibility
Who: Jeff Downs, Tasktop
When: Thursday, Feb 25, 10:30 AM – 11:20 AM
Where: Mandalay Bay SOUTH - Lagoon E
Session Description: Rational Lifecycle Integration Adaptor 1.1.4 (RLIA) combines OSLC linking capabilities originally provided through RLIA Standard Edition with synchronization features in a single release to support integration methodologies for all project teams. Jeff Downs, Sales Engineer from Tasktop, will demonstrate various integration workflows that leverage both synchronization and OSLC linking; e.g., requirements traceability between Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management 5.0.2 and HP Application Lifecycle Management 12.
4) Title: ICE-3751: Accelerating Bosch’s Electric Drive Development with IBM Continuous Engineering Solutions
Who: Joerg Spranger, Robert Bosch GmbH, and Amin Jbabli, IBM
When: Tuesday, Feb 23, 1:15 PM – 2:15 PM
Where: South Seas H – Mandalay Bay SOUTH
Session Description: Today’s automotive suppliers must address pressures to innovate quickly, while also managing the intense challenge of delivering vehicle quality. This session will share first-hand experience addressing these challenges in Bosch's development of safety-critical electric drives. We will share a brief overview of Jazz solution capabilities that were adopted to leverage Bosch's core systems engineering processes. You will gain deep business insights about how Bosch accelerated its product development cycles by enabling Continuous Integration, Continuous Build, Continuous Test and in parallel increased product quality using IBM solutions for software and systems engineering.
