Extending your Rational ALM solutions to third-party tools with the IBM Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters

Let’s face it. Working in a business environment where tools from multiple vendors are deployed can be challenging. And given the pace at which things move, managing data between different parts of the business can become downright unwieldy. Many of you have shared this challenge with us, and a number of you have partnered with us over the last few months to design a solution which reliably integrates our Rational products with other tools. The wait is over! We are pleased to announce the general availability of the Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters Standard Edition.Consisting of three integration adapters for HP ALM, JIRA, and Git, this offering opens up new ways for you to share data between tools from different vendors through the power of Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC).

This release also marks a major milestone as Rational’s vision of collaboration across application lifecycle management tools expands to non-IBM products. Many of you may have already begun to experience what these adapters can do by downloading the technology previews made available on in June. Whether you have already been collaborating with us on these technologies or are just now discovering this offering, you are invited to join us for a live demo and Q&A session on these adapters on October 25, 2012. We look forward to helping you discover new ways to integrate your diverse business environments!

UPDATE: Recordings of the October 25 demo and Q&A session are now available. They are divided up by adapter (HP ALM, JIRA, and Git), and each lasts approximately 45 minutes. These provide a great overview of the value and basic use cases for each adapter. Take a few minutes and check them out!
