Next-generation product developers and testers need next-generation product development software.

Claim your advantage with IBM’s Rational Quality Manager and Persistent Systems.

Even the most everyday products today are becoming more connected, complex and dependent on software to operate properly.
Despite the increased complexity, the pressure is on development teams to deliver these products faster, at a lower cost, and with higher quality than ever before.

Is your product lifecycle management and development software able to meet these growing challenges head on?

Ask yourself the following questions:

As your product portfolio grows, is your quality team struggling to maintain a growing number of test cases and scripts?

Are you struggling to monitor, manage and demonstrate regulatory compliance?

Do all stakeholders have a common understanding of the development goals, objectives and measurements?

Are your quality teams spending too much time in your test lab, identifying assets, reserving them, configuring them and deploying software to them?

Do your engineers know when all system components of a given version or variant are working the way they were specified?

If you said YES to one or more of these, there’s a good chance your current software platform isn’t keeping up with changes happening across your industry and so many others.
You need IBM’s Rational Quality Manager (RQM).

AN INTEGRATED SOLUTION FOR AN INTEGRATED PRODUCT LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT APPROACH

The days of process islands and information silos have been replaced by a collaborative process approach that encompasses every aspect of the product or application lifecycle.

Rational Quality Manager was built with today’s workstyle in mind, seamlessly integrating into IBM’s Continuous Engineering (CE) solution for product lifecycle management (PLM) or application lifecycle management (ALM).
