    In this IBM® Redbooks® publication we describe how to build an advanced business application from end to end. We use a fictional scenario to define the application, document the deployment methodology, and confirm the roles needed to support its development and deployment. Through step-by-step instructions you learn how to:

    - Define the project lifecycle using IBM Solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management

    - Build a logical and physical data model in IBM InfoSphere® Data Architect

    - Confirm business rules and business events using IBM WebSphere® Operational Decision Management

    - Map a business process and mediation using IBM Business Process Manager

    - Use IBM Cognos® Business Intelligence to develop business insight

    In addition, we articulate a testing strategy using IBM Rational® Quality Manager and deployment options using IBM Workload Deployer.

    Taken together, this book provides comprehensive guidance for building and testing a solution using core IBM Rational, Information Management, WebSphere, Cognos and Business Process Management software. It seeks to demystify the notion that developing and deploying advanced solutions is taxing.

    This book will appeal to IT architects and specialists who seek straightforward guidance on how to build comprehensive solutions. They will be able to adapt these materials to kick-start their own end-to-end projects.
