“We were using the basic functionality of IBM Rational ClearCase and ClearQuest, but we wanted to gain a deeper understanding of the capabilities so we could administer the tools to their fullest potential.  cognence trained our team on how to use the more sophisticated features and answered all our questions so we really understood the products.  Because of this training, we now have more efficient processes, better visibility into our projects and a more secure environment.  We were delighted with the outcome and our team is asking to bring them back for more!”
