For the last 4 years, IBM Rational has been building new products and a new technology infrastructure called "Jazz" to revitalize our "Software Development Platform" - a collaborative tool suite to support all phases and all levels of the software development and delivery process.

This IBM presentation will examine how the Jazz based product teams are using Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager and Rational Requirements Composer to develop these products.It shows this usage by following, in detail, the requirements development of one of the new features of Rational Requirements Composer, from customer feedback, through definition scenarios, use cases, storyboard, visual designs, and UI design. It will also show how the progress has been tracked in and how any registered user can follow the development of a feature and provide feedback and enhancement requests

The presentation will conclude with a short demo.
