Now Rational developers can utilize the power of SDC to securely manage and restrict IBM Rational tooling to teams behind the safety of a private cloud while utilizing SDC automation to pull in open-source and internal softwares.

Genuitec, LLC, a pioneer in cloud-based development, is proud to announce the inclusion of IBM Rational software support to the Secure Delivery Center (SDC) portfolio. Now Rational developers can utilize the power of SDC to securely manage and restrict IBM Rational tooling to teams behind the safety of a private cloud while utilizing SDC automation to pull in open-source and internal software.

“SDC is now meeting the needs of IBM shops by offering Rational developers and IT managers a seamless way to manage and lockdown IBM Rational installations across the enterprise,” said Jed Anderson, development manager for Genuitec. “IBM Rational developers utilizing SDC will now be able to quickly pre-install plug-ins and configuration to ensure teams remain standardized on tooling during app development.”

During the development process, programmers and teams are often handed wikis, email chains, zip drives, or how-to guides on setting up their workspaces for each project. This process is unreliable on scale as human error will introduce the wrong tooling, versions of the tooling, incorrect plug-ins and the versions (not to mention sending developers to the Internet to hunt down update sites is problematic at best, since update sites are often not maintained or are confusing). Time and again, the development process results in buggy software because of these errors in tooling set up. SDC solves that by not only sending the toolstacks directly to programmer’s desktops, but continues to manage the entire catalog of project developments from a central location.

Secure Delivery Center (SDC) is now giving IBM Rational and IBM WebSphere shops a seamless path to deliver pre-installations of software components, workspace provisioning, and software catalogs securely behind a private-cloud and directly into their IBM Rational tools. Now you can quickly deliver the tools you need without having to reinstall Rational on your desktops.

Secure Delivery Center is ready for out-of-the-box for installation, and it requires only a short setup wizard that helps team settings and software governance before acting as an inside-the-firewall software management tool. Within that environment, SDC users will now be able to lock down their development environment to ensure the standardization of tools between SDC and IBM Rational, Eclipse IDE, Genuitec’s MyEclipse IDE and other Eclipse-based IDEs.

SDC is available for individuals or teams, please contact sales(at)genuitec(dot)com for pricing. A complimentary 30-day trial is also available at the link below. Trial users and those with current subscriptions receive all updates at no cost; enhanced service agreements are now available and vary in cost.
