ISW is pleased to present our latest Ignition offering: ISW Ignition for Rational Jazz IBM®. ISW Ignition for Rational Jazz is a quick start program designed to accelerate your adoption of the Jazz foundation to build better software.


Rational® Jazz® is a technology platform for open, collaborative software development. Jazz is designed to transform the way people work together to build software, by enabling better collaboration amongst team members, improving efficiency by automating repetitive tasks and delivering real-time insight into the health and status of projects to help teams make better, more informed decisions.

The Jazz platform is built on open standards and provides an architecture for seamlessly integrating a diverse collection of tools, to address the specific needs of all team members across the software development lifecycle. Jazz provides a set of shared services, which implement generic cross-tool capabilities including social networking capabilities for “in-context” collaboration, automation of individual and team workflows across the software lifecycle and real-time visibility of fact-based project metrics via dashboards and reports.

The next generation of IBM Rational products, built from the ground up to leverage the Jazz technology platform includes, Rational Requirements Composer, Rational Team Concert and Rational Quality Manager.

What are we talking about?


Rational Requirements Composer helps teams define and validate project requirements. By providing a rich set of elicitation tools, Requirement Composer allows analysts to capture and link requirements documents, use cases, story boards, business processes, screen flows and mock-ups, business rules and more, to bridge the “information islands” that would otherwise exist.

Rational Team Concert is a collaborative work environment for Developers, Architects and Project Managers. It includes work item management (e.g. Defects / Changes), source control, build management and project planning.

Rational Quality Manager is a collaborative, web-based test management solution. It provides a customizable, role-driven solution for test planning, creation, and execution as well as workflow control, tracking, and end-to-end traceability.
ISW's Ignition for Rational Jazz provides the ability to get started quickly without the high costs involved in a typical projectl.
