Ready for IBM Rational software

Ready for IBM Rational software

For leading companies around the world, third party software including open source, and reuse of internal code, has become much more than a cost-cutting measure; it has become a necessary ingredient for accelerating innovation that is exploited in any software project.  As development teams become more distributed, the need increases for managing the intellectual property (IP) obligations on a single collaborative platform.  Failure to comply with licensing requirements carries a high price, and can result in lawsuits, oblige companies to reveal their source code, and cost them valuable transactions.

Build Analyzer (BA) is part of Protecode System 4 solution, using the analysis and management capabilities of Protecode Enterprise Server (ES). BA analyzes only those files that are actually consumed during a build operation, including source files that are compiled into the final code, or object files that are linked by the core software application. It ensures the files used in a build process satisfy the organization’s licensing policies around open source licenses or third party copyrights. With direct integration to Rational Team Concert, developers can initiate code analysis during the build process. Rational Team Concert provides development teams with a unified collaborative platform that facilitates license compliance on an organizational level.

  • + Functional details

    Working closely with IBM's ClearCase solution Protecode Build Analyzer (BA) monitors the build process, creates a list of files that are used during the build, and analyzes the files that are used in the build process. The Rational Team Concert build process can be modified to include analysis of source files that are compiled into the final code, or object files that are linked by the core software application. The resulting report can then be accessed through the Rational Team Concert build results. The report can then be used to ensure the files used in a build process satisfy the organization’s licensing policies around open source licenses or third party copyrights.

  • + Competitive advantage

    IBM Rational Team Concert Protecode is a vertically-integrated solutions company. Protecode’s focuses on policy-based licensing detection and as a result its product advantages are a) its breadth: providing a seamless and complete software lifecycle IP management portfolio, and b) the unrivalled simplicity of Protecode’s offering in terms of adoption, installation, set-up, use, training and support, and c) aggressive pricing due to focused nature of its solutions.

    As a result, Protecode analysis engine is fast, efficient and requires minimum infrastructure. It is easy to install, set up and use and is economically suited to the task, minimizing the total cost of ownership during the lifetime of the products.
