IBM Announces New Development Platform

IBM Announces New Development Platform
Many emerging market businesses will soon have access to the IBM Rational software development platform for the first time, through the open source Eclipse development framework. This will help give them a competitive advantage through streamlined software development.

This is the view of Nadeem Malik, IBM SA Rational product specialist, who says the new platform due for release next month has particular relevance for approximately 2 000 South African companies that build, extend, modernise, integrate and deploy software in some way.

"From large organisations like the major banks down to small and medium enterprises, developers will be able to become more responsive, resilient and focused by integrating their development processes, while improving employee skills through exposure to best practices aimed at achieving industry standards," says Malik.
