31 January 2009.
The IBM Rational CQ ALM Appliance v7.1.1 was released today to IBM DeveloperWorks. This latest release is an update of the v7.1 release now including the latest ClearQuest v7.1.1 release.
This release is an update of the CQ Appliance we started to deliver in 2009. As the virtual image provides an out-of-the-box pre-installed configuration its really easy to kick off a ClearQuest evaluation, or a pilot project. Just download the appliance, unzip, run a configuration wizard and you are ready to go.
The CQ ALM appliance is using the CQALM package that provides a pre-configured change management process, project planning capabilities and integrated ALM work management. Carolyn Pampino has published a few articles on the ALM schema. Check out the links below.
