This webinar is hosted by the Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC).
Business pressures around automation and rapid deployment have fueled the practice of DevOps to bring together not just people, organizations and processes but the tools and applications to enable it. All these pressures are made worse when hand offs are manual and tools don't facilitate the automation and collaboration needed. This session will discuss these problems and how the OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) initiative is working to address them. Learn about who is participating in the community, why it is an important technology for DevOps integration, and how you can make use of it today and influence its shape for the future.
In this webinar, we'll explore how various integration approaches and ways to collaborate on tool and application integration have fallen short in the enterprise and are even more limiting in cloud environments. With the nature of the integration problem understood, we'll look at how OSLC offers a solution based on the architecture of the web through scenario-driven, minimalist, specifications created by an open community. While we look at OSLC, we'll focus on how it is being used today, and may be used tomorrow, for various cloud applications and management systems. Additionally we'll provide an overview of the latest news from the OSLC community (including progress towards standardizing at OASIS), answer your questions, and show you the many ways you can participate and contribute to OSLC too.
With DOORS, there are various ways to ensure your requirements have been verified and validated. Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) is the foundation of the integration between requirements and the test domains. Come and see how OSLC is used to link requirements and testing, helping development teams to:
- Focus on delivering testable requirements
- Ensure that tested deliverables meet customer requirements
- Simplify impact and coverage analysis
- This presentation includes a demonstration of a typical work flow between Rational DOORS and Rational Quality Manager.
Let's take a look at what was released in Eclipse Lyo 1.0, how people have been making use of it, and what’s next for the project. This webcast will consist of four short presentations:
- OSLC4J update
- OSLC and Jazz client libraries and samples
- What’s new in the OSLC test suite
- Plans for the remainder of 2012
Each part will be 7–9 minutes and will include time for questions.
An introduction to Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC):
- The OSLC community
- Linked Data and RDF
- An example application and its resources
- Elements of OSLC specifications
The original .ppt file has additional information in the speaker notes.
This webcast will be presented in 3 parts:
- Details and demo of the Lyo-OSLC module which is an OSLC CM client developed for use with Rational Team Concert and Rational ClearQuest. Presented by Max Vohlken.
- Details and demo of the Net-OSLC-CM module which is a generic OSLC CM module that was developed for the Simple Defects distributed bug tracking system. Presented by Stephanie Ouillon.
- A round table discussion of the differences between the two contributions, ongoing work, and areas for future work. Roundtable participants Olivier Berger, Mike Fiedler, Stephanie Ouillon, Max Vohlken, and Yuhong Yin
Each part will be 7-9 minutes and will include time for questions.
Mike Loeffler, Systems Engineering IT specialist at General Moters, describes results of ongoing work to evaluate interoperability between Teamcenter and various tools from the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) domain, using the emerging Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) Standard. The standard is already in use to enable collaboration between Change Management, Requirements Management, Source Code Control and other ALM domain tools. To support a complex Mechatronic product (i.e. an Automobile), the standard must also support collaboration with PLM domain tools. Development of this connector has exposed the need for OSLC extensions to cover concepts such as Product Definition and Structure, Effectivity and Variants.

This talk will give a background and description of the IBM Rational Connector for SAP Solution Manager, covering its inception as a custom application for the Blue Harmony project (IBM's deployment of SAP packaged applications for the IBM back office, the largest single deployment of SAP packaged applications) and its evolution into a commercial product.
Following this background material, there will be a live demonstration of the features of the connector. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the design of the connector and the approach, development and testing used to implement the connector, the use the connector makes of OSLC interfaces to the CLM applications, and the connector’s partial implementation of the OSLC CM specification.
The Strategic Planning Platform (SPP) framework is the next evolution in IT management. It is designed to systematically manage change across an organisation. It draws upon new trends in Web technology such as OSLC to facilitate a more decentralised approach to analyzing and prioritizing market changes and business demands. The framework helps organisations understand how they operate today to manage future change. By embracing EA, IT and business into the change process, an organisation can elevate decision-making to a strategic level. IT becomes a full partner in the process.
(We had an error with the recording. Here’s a .pdf of the slides.) Systems engineering such as in the A&D industry is not only challenged by the increasing complexity of modern cyber-physical systems but also by the engineering process itself. This process includes the collaboration between globally distributed engineering teams operating within different companies and domains. The SPRINT (Software Platform for Integration of Engineering and Things) project addresses these needs by building a collaboration platform based on the interoperability technologies proposed by OSLC. The SPRINT collaboration platform provides a seamless, large-scale integration of system engineering tools and services.
This slideshow by Olivier Berger covers the basics of OSLC and discusses how the Change Management specification powers an integration between Jenkins and FusionForge Tracker.
Watch Steve Speicher discuss how better software integrations can improve collaboration productivity.
Watch Andy Gurd introduce OSLC principles and describe the problems we’re trying to solve.
