Agile Application Lifecycle Management
ALM describes the usage of disciplines which govern the process of turning business ideas into software. The life-cycle comprises the following phases. Build management, test management, requirements engineering, code reviews, release management, configuration management, change management and integration management.
The main goal of ALM is to overcome the technological and functional barriers that prevent having a transparent development process. What does Agile mean in the context of ALM? The traditional ALM landscape is enriched with Agile values and strategies for focusing on human interaction.
We believe that ALM must be optimized for the involved people and processes, instead of designing the ALM chain based on the available tools! Our experience with various ALM tools and projects empowers us to find the optimal solution for our customers. With a strong focus on the individual processes and the existing business culture.
Major ALM fundamentals are:
- Increase team collaboration
- Continuous improvement with automated testing, transparency, retrospectives
- Task based development
- Customer focused
- Increased Automation to minimize failures through manual work
- End-to-End ALM chain
