What is IBM ELM/ALM?

What is IBM ELM/ALM?

IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) integrates ELM products to provide a complete set of applications for software or systems development. ELM includes IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS® Next (DOORS Next), IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS (DOORS), IBM Engineering Workflow Management (EWM), and IBM Engineering Test Management (ETM), IBM Engineering Systems Design Rhapsody® – Model Manager (RMM), and IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization – Engineering Insights (ENI) with Jazz™ Team Server. This solution is designed for requirements analysts, developers, systems engineers, and testers. 

The following diagram shows the development lifecycle that the solutions support. To see overviews of the applications that are represented in the image, click the boxes. For example, clickValidate and verify to see an overview of ETM.

This image shows the functions in the development lifecycle supported by the solutions.

To support the development lifecycle, ELM products let you link artifacts across applications, as shown in the following figure and examples: Figure 1. ELM connects analysts, developers, and testers

This graphic shows the relationships between ELM disciplines, as described by the following examples.

Requirements:

  • Requirements are implemented by iteration plans and validated by test plans.
  • Requirements are elicited, documented, elaborated, and validated by analysts. Their implementation progress is tracked in work items, and their correctness is validated by test cases.

Implementation:

  • Project managers and development managers use iteration plans to implement requirements in the context of a development schedule.
  • Team leads plan the iterations using iteration plans, where the work is divided further into tasks.
  • Developers work on defects that are submitted by testers as a result of test execution.

Testing:

  • The test team links requirements to test plans and test cases. 
  • Testers link test cases to work items to ensure coverage of the implementation.
  • Testers run test cases and submit defects for test failures.

ELM integrates the work of analysts, developers, and testers by providing the following cross-application features:

  • Link between artifacts across applications: For example, you can link test cases to work items and requirements.
  • Hover over a link to see details about the link target: For example, testers can monitor the status of a defect that they reported to the development team.
  • Track status across projects by adding widgets from different applications to a dashboard: For example, you can add a widget that shows the defects that are blocking testers.

Jazz Team Server

The Jazz Team Server provides the foundational services, such as user management and license management, that enable the ELM applications to work together as a single logical server. In this way, the Jazz Team Server serves as an integration hub for the applications. After you install the ELMproducts, you install product license keys into the Jazz Team Server to permit access to the capabilities provided by the applications. For details about the topologies supported for new or upgraded installations, see Planning the deployment and installation.

Products and applications

For a detailed overview of the products and applications in ELM, see the following topics:

Part of the Jazz community 

ELM products are developed transparently on the open and extensible Jazz platform. On Jazz.net, you can download the products and their milestones, track development schedules, join discussion forums, open enhancement requests, and interact with the product developers. To learn more about the products, see the developer-written articles in the Jazz.net library or the topics about complex deployment scenarios on the Deployment wiki.

AI Applications Leader

My name is Imran Hashmi. I’ve been part of the IBM Canada Sales team for the past 13 years in various sales and sales management roles. Currently, I’m responsible for all Strategic Accounts across Canada and the Caribbean for IBM AI Applications, Engineering Lifecycle Management. Due to Covid travel restrictions, I’m available on my desk from 7:30 am to 6 pm Eastern time. Please feel to call me on my cell at +1-416-788-9101 or email at [email protected]

My focus areas are simplifying complexity around compliance and regulations. I mainly work with the following client industries in Canada:

Solving hard systems engineering challenges for complex product development.

Today’s software and systems engineering teams are tasked with developing safety-critical products that meet the strictest regulatory compliance standards. These globally dispersed teams need shared access to a single source of truth across their engineering data to ensure improved collaboration and productivity. By adopting an end-to-end view across the entire product lifecycle, they can more easily track changes to minimize risk and reduce costs.

Engineering lifecycle management (ELM) extends the functionality of application lifecycle management (ALM) or SDLC tools for better complex-systems development.
