This course teaches ClearCase administrators how to configure and manage the base ClearCase environment. It also covers basic ClearCase usage required to perform and understand registry administration tasks.

ClearCase is a family of software tools that facilitates software configuration management of source code and other software development assets. It also supports electronic design artifacts, thus enabling hardware and software co-development.

ClearCase offers two configuration management models: base ClearCase and UCM (Unified Change Management). Base ClearCase provides a basic infrastructure, while UCM is built on base ClearCase and provides an out-of-the-box model. Both models can be configured to support a wide variety of needs.

Individuals who need a fast track to configuring, maintaining, and administering a base ClearCase environment.

No previous ClearCase experience required. This course covers the ClearCase functionality required to support base ClearCase maintenance and administration activities.
