IBM Engineering Test Management SaaS

This cloud service provides dynamic test plans, governed workflows, lab efficiency, test coverage analysis, and manual test authoring. These features integrate with other lifecycle artifacts such as work items and requirements, and with reporting and dashboards. They provide detailed and highly customized analytics to help monitor the health and progress of a project. Customizable reports provide both real-time views and historical trends of artifacts across the entire lifecycle, including requirements, work items, builds, test cases and test results. Team reports and dashboards help Clients keep tabs on the health of their project. Dashboards provide an at-a-glance view of work item queries, event feeds, reports, and other items critical to understanding progress.

IBM Engineering Workflow Management SaaS

This Cloud Service provides change management, planning, software configuration management, and automation capabilities as described below:

  1. Change Management - The main feature of Change Management is customizable work items, which track and coordinate epics, features, stories, tasks and ordinary defects. Work items and the workflow process can be customized to suit a Client's specific needs to support any process. By separating the process from the underlying architecture, new workflows and process can be added and shared across teams as needs change in the future or new methodologies emerge.
  2. Planning - The Planning capability provides tools to assist with the planning, estimation, ranking and velocity management for entire projects, for teams within those projects, and for individual developers. Plans are accessible to everyone on the team and show the progress on releases and iterations at any point in time. The planning capability includes visual task boards and Kanban boards to prioritize and optimize the flow of work or quickly address blocked tasks to speed delivery cycle times.
  3. Software Configuration Management - The component-based source control system provides strong support for parallel development, agile development, and geographically distributed teams. It integrates tightly with defect tracking, builds, and process automation.
  4. Automation - The Automation capability provides build management control to the development and test teams. Team members can track build progress, view build alerts and results, request builds, and trace the relationship of builds to artifacts such as change sets and work items.
  5. Reporting - The Reporting capability provides an easy to use self-serve reporting interface that integrates with visual dashboards to enable web-based project status and visual tracking of work efforts across teams and programs. Both advanced cross project and cross capability reporting are supported as well as trend and historical data analysis. Dashboards communicate to the entire organization key live project data and status allowing teams to move away from "out of date" data status reports.

IBM Engineering Workflow Management Contributor SaaS

This Cloud Service provides a subset of the capabilities of IBM Engineering Workflow Management SaaS. Included in IBM Engineering Workflow Management Contributor SaaS are the change management, planning and reporting capabilities as described above. IBM Engineering Workflow Management Contributor SaaS does not include components Software Configuration Management or Automation.

IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next SaaS

IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights SaaS

This Cloud Service provides capabilities to visualize relationships among engineering artifacts across the lifecycle to yield insights into helping to improve project efficiency and product completeness. The Cloud Service offering can only be purchased as a part of an ELM Extended Tier offering within the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Extended SaaS bundle.

IBM Engineering Systems Design Rhapsody - Design Manager SaaS

This Cloud Service is used to help design teams and their stakeholders share, trace, review and manage designs, supporting the systems engineering and embedded software development lifecycle. This Cloud Service offering can only be purchased as a part of an Enterprise Tier within the IBM IoT Continuous Engineering on Cloud bundle, or in the Enterprise tier. This Cloud Service provides:

  1. Central design storage teams can store, share, search and manage designs and models using a central system repository with web-based access.
  2. Stakeholder collaboration suppliers, customers, contractors and other extended stakeholders can access information through a web client.
  3. Design reviews the software automates design reviews with all stakeholders to facilitate the communication of requirements, decision making and quality improvement.
  4. Multi-discipline document generation and reporting Client can create comprehensive documentation for specifications, communication, compliance and reporting.

IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Base SaaS

This Cloud Service includes the functionality described above for IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next SaaS, IBM Engineering Test Management SaaS, and IBM Engineering Workflow Management SaaS, and additionally provides:

  1. Customizable reports with real-time views and historical trends of artifacts across the entire lifecycle, including requirements, work items, builds, test cases and test results.
  2. Team reports and dashboards to help Clients oversee a project, providing an at-a-glance view of work item queries, event feeds, reports, and other items critical to understanding progress.
  3. Strategic re-use through organization of lifecycle engineering artifacts according to re-usable products, systems, subsystems, and components in development when subscribed at Enterprise tier.
  4. Configuration Management of IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next SaaS, IBM Engineering Test Management SaaS, and Global Configuration Management across the lifecycle when subscribed at Extended tier.

IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Extended SaaS

This Cloud Service is only available in the Extended tier, and includes the functionality described above for IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next SaaS, IBM Engineering Test Management SaaS, IBM Engineering Workflow Management SaaS, IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights SaaS, IBM Engineering Systems Design Rhapsody - Design Manager SaaS, and IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Base SaaS. In addition, it provides universal access to engineering information from across the lifecycle and enables key engineering competencies:

  1. find and discover relevant information regardless of where the data is stored and managed;
  2. understand and react to engineering change with full visibility across the engineering lifecycle;
  3. visualization and analysis capabilities that help turn insights into predictable outcomes;
  4. tools to create, edit, and share models and designs, integrate design artifacts with other lifecycle resources; and
  5. collaboratively review, analyze, and report on models and designs.
