IBM® Rational Team Concert™ is a collaborative software development tool that teams use to
manage all aspects of their work, such as iteration and release planning, change
management, defect tracking, source control, and build automation.
Rational Team Concert allows work items to be linked to plans, source code,
and builds, allowing team members to better understand relationships between these artifacts.
Traceability views help teams identify and close gaps to improve quality.
The Planning component of Rational Team Concert provides tools to
assist with the planning and execution of both agile and traditional
projects. For agile projects, it provides tools to create product,
release, and sprint backlogs for teams, to create individual plans for
developers, to track the progress during an iteration, and to
balance the workload of developers.
Work items are the fundamental mechanism in Rational Team Concert to
track and coordinate development tasks and workflows, all governed by
your team's associated process. In addition, work items are the hub for
linkage between many Rational Team Concert artifacts (e.g. builds, work
items, and change sets) and provide support for integration
with other products.
The Source Control component of Rational Team Concert is a
component-based version control system built on the Jazz platform. It focuses
on supporting geographically distributed teams and has strong
support for parallel and agile development.
The Team Build component integrates the team's build system into
Rational Team Concert, providing build awareness, control, and
traceability to the team. Team members can track build progress, view
build alerts and results, request builds, and trace builds to other
artifacts like change sets and work items.
Try Quick Planner, a web-based interface that lets the team
create and plan work items in a more streamlined and efficient way.
Git and Jenkins users can enjoy the advantages of
Rational Team Concert tracking and planning capabilities, process control,
dashboards, and reports. Rational Team Concert integrates with these tools and more.
You define the processes, Rational Team Concert enforces them. You define
the teams, Rational Team Concert keeps them informed and synchronized.
Process awareness and customization
Rational Team Concert can improve the productivity of your teams and
the quality of the work they produce by allowing each team to teach the
tool its best practices. Rational Team Concert uses this knowledge to
automatically detect violations of your teams' process the moment they
Rational Team Concert knows your project teams, their internal
organization, and the artifacts they are working on. It greatly
simplifies the access to team-related information and how to perform
Rational Team Concert has a built-in integration with IBM Connections.
This integration brings the power of social software to development teams and
empowers business stakeholders to easily connect with development projects.
