it seems that PTC finally has made the decision to focus in it's future development for ILM on a revamp of the web client and to stop the further development of the rich client. I'm wondering what will this mean to us? We're using ILM in two major projects. One project is focussing on requirements management as a doors replacement in different departments, the other project is using ILM for requirements management, change management and configuration management (incl. source code management) for embedded software development. Users in both projects are working only with the rich client at this time.
I think a switch to a web-client is not that big issue for the first project, the same way to work is well known with other tools like jira or stages and so on. I'm worrying a bit about the second project, particular for the work which is normally done with the SI-part of the rich client. The greater complexity of SI compared to GIT or SVN is one of the points where i wonder how this could be build into a web-client. Another topics could be the performance of file operations and the handling of huge sandboxes with a web client.
Or (a completely other idea) is it possible to stay with the rich client for SI and to use the new web client only for the IM-part? How about things like si-project or sourcelink-fields in this case? Could this work?
Any other opinions?
There is a working group for this topic. If you are interested, the link to the group is: Integrity Lifecycle Manager UI Replacement. The group is just starting and your participation is encouraged.
thanks for the link. I'm really interested in this topic and looking forward for the upcoming informations and discussions and so on.
kind regards, Jens
We are currently in the design phase. 'As-is' analysis was just completed, 'gap analysis' is in progress. Your participation in the workgroup is very valuable since it will help us make decisions on how to approach certain topics such as source.
The group above is currently in the "recruitment" phase with the first meetings getting kicked off in a couple weeks so stay tuned!
