Overview Product roadmap Jazz features and benefits Library
People building great software, together.
Jazz is IBM Rational’s new technology platform for collaborative software delivery. Uniquely attuned to global and distributed teams, the Jazz platform is designed to transform how people work together to build software—making software delivery more collaborative, productive and transparent. You can think of Jazz technology as an extensible framework that dynamically integrates and synchronizes people, processes and assets associated with software development projects.
Jazz technology enables collaboration among business stakeholders, subject matter experts, and all of the relevant people that have a role to play in the successful delivery of software – not just software professionals. This represents a transformational leap in the value of software delivery teams, as these teams can now make software a focal point for driving innovation across the enterprise.
Jazz is a technology platform, not a product. Product offerings that are built on the Jazz platform will be able to leverage a rich set of capabilities for team-based software development and delivery. Rational Team Concert family, Rational Quality Manager and Rational Requirements Composer are the first offerings built on Jazz technology.
