Have you figured out that the CLM InfoCenter was relocated to a central Knowledge Center for a while now? As known by all of us (but often forgotten as well) the product documentation is the CORE/PRIMARY source of information (before reaching out to any other one).
But last time you were questioning a specific feature of the CLM product, how long did it take you to get to the right web page? more than 10 seconds?
If you ran a Google search (e.g.”RTC infocenter 5.1“), where you pointed to the specific product (RTC/RQM/RDNG/DM) and version (v3.x,v4.x,v5.x) you looked for ? Or, for whatever referencing reason, did it end up… missing its finest target?
In such case, we share this annoyance as I figured out the first returned results do NOT systematically match with my searching criterias (as for today, the search I provided earlier returned me with links to older product versions, some Jazz.net wikis, etc.)
As a result, I came up with idea of providing a “quick access list” (or cheat sheet) to get it systematically right and quick:
|CLM (Collaborative Lifecycle Management)|
|RTC (Rational Team Concert)|
|RQM (Rational Quality Manager)|
|RDNG (Rational Doors Next Generation)|
|RDM (Rhapsody Design Manager)|
|RSA DM (RSA Design Manager)|
|Related reporting products|
|Insight (Rational Insight)|
|RPE (Rational Publishing Engine)|
I hope this blog post could save you some time and generated a positive side-effect: having the new Knowledge Center positioned higher in the returned results of your future web searches!
