Building Views with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization – Engineering Insights (ENI) Part Two – Building a Traceability View

In this article, we’ll build our first view. Later we’ll make it look visually appealing and introduce some dynamic visualization but we’ll start by simply reporting the data we are interested in and see just how quickly and easily views can be designed.

Building Views with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization – Engineering Insights (ENI) Part One – Introduction

In this series of articles, we’ll be exploring how to build views in IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization – Engineering Insights (ENI) that allow you to visualize and analyze your engineering data in a powerful, dynamic way. We’ll see just how quickly and easily these views can be built, starting with some very basic concepts before […]
