Rising product complexity and intense market pressures present major challenges to designers of electronic systems. To stay competitive, companies need tight coordination and collaboration between the software and hardware engineers, processes, tools and terminology they use. IBM is walking the walk and teaming to innovate—delivering co-development solutions. 

In this webcast we examine two customers and their use of IBM Rational and Cadence Design Systems technologies: 

1) A leading semiconductor and systems company uses Clear Case and Cadence to improve enterprise configuration management, version control and workplace management

2) IBM Services Technology Group use Clear Quest and Rational Team Concert for change management and collaboration. 

We will further explore how the use of Rational is helping to significantly reduce development costs, increase reuse, and improve quality
