Recently, I’ve had a few requests to talk about Rational Test Lab Manager. Rational Test Lab Manager is an optional component of Rational Quality Manager that enables quality assurance teams to manage all aspects of a test lab: Asset Inventory, Test machine scheduling and provisioning and Asset utilization reporting. It’s a very powerful component of Quality Manager that enables management with a host of integration points:
- A VMLogix integration enables lab management of Virtual Machines
- A Tivoli Change and Configuration Management Database integration enables automated inventory of lab assets
- A Tivoli Provisioning Manager integration enables provisioning and configuring of remote lab assets
As always though, it’s easiest to understand through a demo. This morning, I posted a quick overview demo we used at our Rational Software Conference 2009. The demonstration covers all the basic functionality and benefits of IBM Rational Test Lab Manager. Enjoy.
