Implementing DevOps with Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM)

DevOps is the practice of development and operations teams working together in the entire software lifecycle, following lean and agile principles that allow them to deliver software in a rapid and continuous manner. The Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management provides the cross-team perspective and interlinking of artifacts needed for DevOps.

Why use CLM for DevOps?

IBM's Collaborative Lifecycle Management solution is a tightly integrated suite of products that facilitates the adoption of DevOps. You can start with capabilities that address your immediate needs, then adopt the rest over time, giving you flexibility now and later. The CLM suite includes the following capabilities:

Requirements management
Planning, collaboration, and development
Quality management
Configuration management

Integrate with UrbanCode Deploy

A DevOps culture, in which development and operations teams work synchronously, relies heavily on automation at the deployment end. Integrate IBM® Rational Team Concert™ with IBM UrbanCode Deploy for a continuous deployment process for DevOps.

Cloud-managed DevOps

The DevOps culture aligns well with the benefits of cloud services. Maintain your business focus by allowing an IBM services team manage your infrastructure in a centralized, secure, cloud-based environment. You have two options:
  • CLM Software as a Service (CLM SaaS), which includes a product license
  • CLM as a Managed Service (CLM aaMS), where you bring your own license
