Agile Application Lifecycle Management

ALM describes the usage of disciplines that govern the process of turning business ideas into software. The life-cycle comprises of 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 the whole ALM must be optimized for the involved people and processes, instead of designing the ALM chain based on the available tools! Our experiences with various ALM tools and many projects empowers us to find the optimal solution for our customers with a strong focus on the individual processes and the existing business culture.

The major ALM fundamentals are:

  • Increase team collaboration
  • Continuous improvement with automated testing, transparency, retrospectives
  • Task based development
  • Customer focused
  • High Automation to minimize failures through manual work
  • End-to-End ALM chain
