Improve the value of your CLM reports by using metrics

See the original posting on IBM developerWorks – Java

The Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) is a set of seamlessly integrated applications that work together as one platform for managing the complete lifecycle of your development projects. The application and lifecycle data that your teams create collaboratively for their projects is provided to you for reporting by CLM in a data warehouse. Although CLM includes more than 200 sample reports, with the addition of either the Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence (RRDI) component or IBM Rational Insight, you get design tools for customizing CLM samples and creating your own reports. With these tools, you have access to the data in the warehouse, which is grouped into two main categories: operational data (ODS) and metrics. This article gives you an in-depth look at the metrics available and how to use them.
