As the subject line states, "Does IBM uses its own ELMS tools to develop the ELMS tool"?

I assume IBM wouldn't be afraid to use it's own tools in this case.

All ELM components development is managed using EWM (Engineering Workflow Management).
That is how we track support case that becomes Change Request, Enhancement etc.

The short answer is "Yes". A slightly longer answer: beyond the ELM product teams that use ELM to develop ELM, there are thousands of people in IBM using the ELM tools.

Not only do they use their own tools, up until late March this year you could go into their ELM project areas and browse around and see what they were doing, right here on

For the past decade and more, whenever I had a client ask if there were any large and complex projects they could see that used ELM, I would bring them here and show them the multiple releases, fixpacks, requirements, tests etc.
