IT Jungle Article: PTC Completes Database Support in Implementer

With the recent launch of Implementer 12.3, PTC has wrapped up planned enhancements for the database. The software works closely with IBM’s Rational Developer for i (RDi) to provide a single point of control for versioning, code promoting, and task assignments, without requiring the developer to ever leave RDi.

IBM i® Thought Leadership – Securing the Change

Change control systems must allow users to be designated with certain rights to manage your applications. These rights allow change control events to be performed by users with specified capabilities, while at the same time not allowing that user to perform the same events outside of change control.

PTC’s Implementer's Secured Promotion Technology (SPT) takes advantage of adoption to provide a secure and highly auditable change control environment while avoiding any potential security exposures.
