This section is devoted to the Emerging technologies of the Rational brand. These are specific products, or solutions, or technologies, that we are focused on helping bring to the market. Since many of these areas are "brand new", we want to capture best practices and common deployment information for these areas. If you have any questions about these, please contact DanToczala
who is the manager of this team.
The focus areas highlighted here are all new (or nearly new) to the broader marketplace. Since the understanding of how these things can be best used and deployed is still changing, we are collecting "best practices" in these wiki pages as we learn. Therefore the information found here on these focus areas should be considered as guidelines
for how to best utilize these tools and solutions. The information shown here is our LATEST
thinking on these things, and represents what is often called the "bleeding edge" of our knowledge base. You need to understand that while we encourage you to use this information, and help us add to it, it does not represent any "official" guidance on the part of IBM. It is merely a transparent sharing of our best information to date, and you need to treat it that way.

. The basic introduction is out there, as well as details on the benefits of using DevOps services, and the costs associated with using DevOps services (which are minimal, and can be free).
Past emerging technologies
As time goes on, we will "graduate" some of these focus areas, so they can no longer be considered as "emerging". As we do this, we will move on to other areas of focus. Because we are proud of our work, we don't want to lose it, so we will keep this content "alive" in the subsections below for historical and reference purposes.
The DOORS Next Gen
solution is the next generation of the popular requirements management product known as DOORS.
