Unifying Code and Content for Web Development

Depending on the structure of your organization, your team may identify these roles
using different names, assign the responsibility of different roles to be performed by
one individual rather than several, or share the responsibility of a single role among
several team members, as defined by the Unified Process for UCM. No matter how
your team is structured, you can use UCM successfully because the model follows a
basic process for configuration and change management, and ClearCase LT helps to
automate much of the artifact and activity auditing.
Unifying Code and Content for Web Development
Although most of this tutorial discusses development concepts for traditional
software projects, many of the ideas, tools, and processes presented can also be
applied to Web applications. For example, as software applications and Web sites
grow in size, complexity, and strategic value, so does the need to control changes to
them.
Beyond these common characteristics, there are important distinctions to make
between Web-based and traditional software development. In Web applications:
s
Change happens at a considerably faster pace.
s
Many stakeholders in both technical and non-technical roles contribute to Web
sites.
s
The frequency of change and the broader spectrum of stakeholders increases the
likelihood of error.
