SmartBear Receives Partner Award at IBM Rational Innovate 2011
We wanted to share with you some exciting news from IBM Rational Innovate 2011. We have received an award as a
Rational 2011 Business Partner for Innovation in the Complex and Embedded Systems category! Our peer review tool, CodeCollaborator, was submitted for its integration with IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC).
This award recognizes the IBM Business Partner solution or integration that delivers an IT solution which helps customers create sustainable differentiation, business innovation and agility. As we shared with you yesterday, CodeCollaborator is becoming an organic part of the way customers use RTC and we're certainly glad it's making an impact at companies utilizing Rational tools.

A customer reference who was part of the
nomination works for a world leading provider of networking (and more)
solutions for defense and government customers and we're happy to share with you just a bit of what they had to say:
They stated (in part): "...We are very impressed with the overall CodeCollaborator product. What drove us to support SmartBear's nomination was the ease with which CodeCollaborator connected to our IBM Rational tools. It connects seamlessly to our ClearCase environment and allowed an easy way to show differences between a view-private version and its predecessor. We will be working with SmartBear further in the future. They have a phenomenal product that can fit in many aspects of our business..."
Thank you to (you know who you are!) for such a glowing referral. We're all very proud of this accomplishment.
If you have any questions about how CodeCollaborator works with Rational Team Concert, please let us know.
