A smarter planet starts with the innovation of smarter products. Engineering teams driving this innovation need new, collaborative ways to develop and deliver the right demands on time, on budget, and with the right quality. IBM<sup>®</sup> Rational<sup>®</sup> Workbench for Systems and Software Engineering (Workbench) software provides integrated and collaborative capabilities for such systems delivery teams.
Systems delivery is often divided into multiple categories, for example, systems engineering, project management, software engineering, and quality management. These categories interconnect across the systems delivery life cycle, performing distinct tasks and creating distinct life cycle work products. The IBM Rational Workbench for Systems and Software Engineering software is a life cycle management solution that supports such collaborative tasks and linking of the life cycle work products. The Workbench also enacts the systems delivery workflows and provides task management capabilities to effectively run the systems delivery project.
