DevOps, Continuous Delivery, and Application Release Automation

The promise of the convergence between ALM and PLM, long demanded by enterprise customers and touted for its tremendous potential by industry analysts, has finally arrived with the Integration of Polarion ALM and Siemens Teamcenter.

A first showcase of two real-life use cases focused on Requirements Integration and Change Orchestration, including workflow demonstrations, will be presented during the Wednesday Keynote at Siemens PLM Connection in Dallas, TX, May 18-21.

In addition, the power of the integration will also be demonstrated in three sessions by Stefano Rizzo, SVP Strategy at Polarion Software. Those demonstrations will also include an integration between Polarion ALM and Electric Cloud, which enables Siemens PLM users to tap into the Continuous Delivery functionality provided by Electric Cloud via Polarion ALM.

Fully synchronized interaction near-real-time between Polarion ALM and Siemens Teamcenter users, and by extension access to Continuous Delivery functionality,, is now a reality via a window into the collaborators’ respective tools, while the domain experts can remain in their familiar environments.

As a result, the integration brings Software Engineers in the loop with their Electrical and Mechanical counterparts, delivering unprecedented productivity gains.

New LiveReport Widgets Available for Polarion 2015 Pages

Screenshot: Polarion LiveReport Widgets panelThe recent release of Polarion Version 2015 introduced a new feature called LiveReport Pages. This new type of page allows Polarion users to create online information and develop reports visually, using predefined “widgets”. The initial widget catalog has a full SDK documentation how the widgets can be implemented to support even more use cases which can be addressed using these widgets.
