IBM Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager

IBM® Rational® Engineering Lifecycle Manager helps you visualize, analyze and gain insight from your engineering lifecycle data. Engineering teams can improve their understanding of the relationships in complex lifecycle data and demonstrate compliance with regulatory and industry standards.

Explore and analyze data

With views, you can explore and analyze data and artifact associations across tools from multiple engineering disciplines. Use predefined views to monitor and measure project status accurately by browsing the big picture and focusing only on the data that you need.

Manage complexity

In large systems or software development projects, use Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager to see the full context of a query in a simple view so that you can make informed decisions during the development process.

See the impact of a change

In views, you can run dependency analysis to determine which related artifacts are affected by a change. You can focus on artifacts from specific tools. If you use configuration management, your dependency analysis can focus on specific configurations.

Collaborate across roles and engineering disciplines

With the Jazz® open architecture and federated data approach, you can visualize and control the engineering data throughout your organization to ensure compliance with regulatory standards. Views that are relevant to multiple teams can be shared on project dashboards. You can also import and export views to share them with other parts of your organization or with your clients.
