Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 5.0 M4 New & Noteworthy

New in Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 5.0 M4

Data Collection Component

The Data Collection Component is an alternative to the Insight and Java based ETL for CLM products. Designed to address key performance, and deployment concerns with the current ETL solutions, it is a solution that employs parallel processing and optimizes system resource utilization by utilizing efficiently available system resources to process the data. This in return results in a reduced overall execution time for the ETL process for CLM data, whether there is a single instance, or multiple instances to process.

In this sprint, several improvements have been made in the Data Collection Component:

  • Data Collection Job history now reflects the Jobs name in the history instead of the resource group
  • Added locale based date and language support
  • Improved execution status, more clear messages available Idle, Waiting for execution, running
  • Enabled deletion of execution history records

Refer to DCC 50 M4 New And Noteworthy for additional system requirement information, and Rational Data Collection Component Tech Preview Installation document for installation and configuration.

Jazz Reporting Service

The Jazz Reporting Service is a new capability in the Jazz family of products to assist with gathering knowledge and reporting on an enterprise's software life cycle data. It can create consolidated reports on data in RTC, RQM, RM and others and show how the data links together. It also has the power to display data together that reside in different project areas. Then the data can be displayed as a table or a chart and displayed in a common dashboard.

After the Jazz Reporting Service was first introduced in Sprint 3, a number of improvements have been made in S4 around usability and performance, including "Ready to use" reports, query builder and editor improvements, and a widget catalog for CLM integration.

Refer to JRS New and Noteworthy Sprint 4 for additional information about specific areas.

Cognos Business Intelligence

The Cognos Business Intelligence included in RRDI 2.0.6 releases was based on Cognos version 10.2.1.

Sprint 4 of RRDI 5.0 includes Cognos Business Intelligence version 10.2.1 fixpack 2, which addresses several issues in the report server.

RRDI 5.0 release may include additional Cognos fixpack in a future sprint.

Operating System Support

Starting in RRDI 5.0 release, RRDI does not support 32-bit operating systems any more, to be consistent with the corresponding Collaborative Lifecycle Management products.
