The billion user internet is transforming business models from “cathedral and bazaar” supply chains to “long tail” business models. How can we apply the lessons of Web 2.0 transformation to the software development domain?

In this presentation, we explore highly collaborative approaches to software delivery powered by the Rational Jazz solution for collaborative ALM. By integrating Web 2.0 technologies, Agile practices and “team first” principles, we’ll show you how Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager and other next-generation solutions are transforming the way teams plan, develop, test and deliver software.
