IBM is announcing at the Rational Software Developer conference, Rational Team Concert, a commercial product built on the Jazz project. While this has been buzzing around the Java community since it was demoed at JavaOne last year in 2005. The goal of this project is to be to team collaboration what Eclipse has been to development environments. This will integrate very tightly with Sametime and the new Lotus Connections/Quickr products (come see my presentation at LCTY for more details on that). Of course it also integrates with ClearCase/ClearQuest, but those are not a requirement. The integration of ClearQuest will give a team the most powerful features. Take a look at jazz.net.
