We are celebrating a stronger Partnership with HCL Software.  This partnership with HCL provides Rational Test with the latest technologies, growing roadmaps, continuous integrations with DevOps tools and an outstanding client advocacy program. 

On September 15, 2022, we announced and launched Rational Test 10.5 with new and enhanced features to our IBM DevOps Rational Test Portfolio.  We focused on our customers request for enhancements and our development and test community.  There’s something for everyone!  We are ready for virtual roadmap discussions, demos, webinars and limited in-person events.  It’s an exciting time with IBM DevOps Rational Test and HCL Software. 

We want to take a moment to say, “Thank You!” for allowing us to help you create a better software delivery experience.   Our development team has been busy in the background as we constantly groom the Request for Enhancement (RFE) backlog.  Therefore, we are delighted to share we’ve delivered seven (7) RFEs in this release.
