Essentials of Configuration Management with IBM Rational ClearCase UCM, V7.1
Course duration: 2 Days
Course number: RS404
Abstract: Configuration Management with IBM Rational ClearCase UCM, V7.1 is a two-day, instructor-led course designed to teach configuration managers how to implement ClearCase UCM effectively in their development environment (Windows or Unix/Linux). This course introduces you to the discipline of software configuration management (SCM) using a unified change management approach (UCM) and discusses the attributes of effective SCM. Learn what information is critical to include in a configuration management plan. Practice creating and implementing a usage model based on a simulated software development project. The usage model includes details about organizing project artifacts, streaming strategies, and project process and policies.

This IBM Redbooks publication describes configuration management in general and how it is implemented in the Rational products ClearCase and ClearQuest. The target audience for this book is anyone considering a software configuration management (SCM) solution, and in particular, project managers and configuration management leaders responsible for medium and large UCM deployments. In Part 1 we introduce the general concept of software configuration management (SCM), and why software asset and lifecycle management is good business. We describe an SCM strategy that leads to the ClearCase and ClearQuest products. In Part 2 we provide the details for planning and implementing SCM using a ClearCase environment, focusing on the test environment, network, servers, and clients. In Part 3 we introduce ClearQuest, its terminology, the roles and responsibilities of the different types of users, and the infrastructure required for a UCM environment. We also provide the details for planning and implementing ClearQuest. In Part 4 we introduce unified change management (UCM) using ClearCase UCM and ClearQuest, including design considerations for an effective UCM implementation, and how UCM is used to manage complexity by raising the level of abstraction. In Part 5 we describe how to do parallel development in multiple geographical locations using ClearCase and ClearQuest MultiSite, including detailed procedures for planning and implementing MultiSite for a UCM environment.
