Akimbi Slingshot Now Certified Ready-for-Rational

Akimbi announced support for IBM Rational Release 7.

Quoting from their press release:

“IBM helps customers govern their software development environments to accelerate global software delivery,” said Michael Loria, vice president, business development, Rational Software, IBM. “The integration between Akimbi Slingshot and Rational ClearQuest amplifies one of the key benefits of our Team products – supporting geographically distributed development teams, allowing our customers to customize their test management workflows.”


“Akimbi Slingshot and IBM Rational Release 7, Team products combine to empower globally distributed teams by addressing a set of challenges that have historically combined to impede distributed team success,” said James Phillips, CEO of Akimbi Systems. “By pooling and sharing lab resources, our customers are able to capture and redeploy live defect-state test configurations.”

The integrated solution announced today creates a closed loop system that automatically launches the correct test configuration for an IBM Rational ClearQuest test case. Once a virtual test configuration is deployed – which takes less than a minute – users may execute tests against it using Rational test products. When tests fail, users can capture a snapshot of the test environment at the time of failure, and embed an Akimbi LiveLink URL in the ClearQuest defect report. When the developer reads the report, he simply clicks on the URL to view the defect in its “live” failed state, bypassing the multi-hour exercise of reproducing it.
