ClearCase is uniquely positioned to satisfy the requirements of hardware developers using tools like Cadence Virtuoso. Implementing the ClearCase Virtuoso integration in an organization where it is also used by the software development teams allows organizations to manage the development process in a uniform manner, resulting in lower TCO and improved outcomes.
Schematic diff tool enables IC Designers to graphically browse-through and review changes made across versions of the same schematic design. This tool provides a means to the designers to navigate through any addition, deletion or modification which may have taken place between the versions compared. During the navigation, the tool also highlights the deltas on the schematic editor in case they happen to be part of any visible design component.

The ClearCase registry server was upgraded from single threaded to multi-threaded, which relieves significant loading of the registry server during peak periods.
This is the last in a series of three blog posts exploring characteristics of development projects to consider when choosing a Software Configuration Management system.
Process Automation and Enforcement
Most software projects have a defined process. Some are lightweight and may just require that code reviews be done before a significant change is delivered to the project. Others are extensive and with detailed traceability requirements, limits on what is allowed in different phases of the project, strict rules based on security requirements, etc.
You may have heard that ClearQuest now supports single-sign-on (SSO)! Many companies use 3rd party hosted SSO identity providers – there’s a lot out there to choose from. From our client advocacy program, we learned that one of our customers uses Okta as their SSO provider and was interested in using it with ClearQuest Web (CQWeb). We created an Okta development account to see what would be involved in getting this to work.
IBM is changing the name of Interconnect to “think”, and they are interested in your input regarding conference content. If you are able, please participate in the think jam to make your opinions known about what you want to be included in the conference, including specific products and sessions you would be interested in learning about.
ClearCase provides flexible mechanisms to help implement a wide variety of security requirements for software and hardware development projects. This webinar will provide an overview of many of these including authentication options, authorization controls, and encryption support.

This is the second in a series of blog posts exploring characteristics of development projects to consider when choosing a Software Configuration Management system.
It is common for a software system to be used in multiple products. For example, an app might have a free version for personal use and a more powerful version for corporate deployment. Thus, there is a free variant and a corporate variant. They share most of the software but have variant-specific code for each. The SCM system must provide a way to share common code while isolating variant-specific code. This must account for past and future releases of the needed variants as well as merging defect fixes forward to the appropriate contexts.
ClearCase has proven its mettle as advanced software configuration management solution for many years now. With Rational ClearCase - Cadence Virtuoso Integration, ClearCase brings its enterprise configuration management capabilities to analog or mixed signal designers. This integration enables designers to take advantage of core capabilities of ClearCase, without leaving their familiar design environment. This integration allows custom chip designers to complete ClearCase actions from within Cadence Virtuoso.
Tired of entering your password? I know I am. If I didn’t have to type in my password 20 times every day, I would have finished fixing all the defects in ClearQuest. Ok, that’s hyperbole, but it really is a pain, isn’t it? Wouldn’t it be great if you could log in once to access all your applications? The good old people writing security standards have been nice enough to give us a solution. It is called “single sign on”. With more and more DevOps products integrating with each other it is becoming even more important to have a centralized identity management solution where you can sign in once, and access multiple applications.
