ReleaseTEAM to Deliver Expertise for IBM Rational 7.1 Upgrades

The Configuration Management Specialists at ReleaseTEAM, Inc. announced that they have a tested and proven process to help software development teams upgrade to the IBM Rational 7.1 suite of tools. Through expert support and guidance, ReleaseTEAM provides its IBM Rational Certified consulting services to customers who require assistance with the 7.1 version upgrade.

The IBM Rational suite of tools now uses the installation tools and methodology common across other IBM applications, the IBM Installation Manager. For IBM Rational Tools users, especially ClearCase and ClearQuest users, this means adopting a new technology and a significant change away from the familiar siteprep. ReleaseTEAM presented a comprehensive whitepaper at the June Colorado Rational User’s Group meeting that describes the new process for an Enterprise deployment. This whitepaper as delivered is available at

“Software Development Teams using the IBM Rational application suite often require additional support to complete version upgrades.” said Shawn Doyle, CEO of ReleaseTEAM.  “We saw the level of difficulty associated with the 7.1 version upgrade, and devoted internal resources to develop an effective upgrade strategy. The 7.1 upgrade is not trivial, however, ReleaseTEAM has the experience and knowledge to make it go a lot smoother.”
