  • The Rational Unified Process is a software development process that covers the entire software development lifecycle.

  • It is a process product that brings a wealth of knowledge, accumulated over 20 years from a vast range of sources, right to the practitioner's workstation in the form of an online electronic guide.

  • It embeds guidance on many modern techniques and approaches: object technology and component-based development, modeling and UML, architecture, iterative development, and so on.

  • It is an open process framework that software development organizations can configure and extend to suit their own needs.

  • It is not a frozen product; rather, it is alive, constantly maintained, and continuously evolving, with new process components made available online.

  • It is based on a solid process architecture, and that allows a development organization to configure and tailor it to suit its needs.

  • It supports key best practices for software development.

  • It is supported by an extensive palette of tools developed by IBM Rational.
