Application Lifecycle Management

Application lifecycle management (ALM) is the concept of managing your software development project throughout all phases of its life. Statistics have shown that software and applications acquired and deployed within a lifecycle management framework are both more reliable and more stable.

Lifecycle Management is challenging, especially in larger organizations. New opportunities are continuously emerging, innovation drives success and the pace is normally high to keep ahead of your competition. To succeed you need one coherent platform for developing applications or products that supports your efforts, makes your work more efficient and cost effective. You also need to cover the maintenance and management/operations, customer relationship and support aspects of the lifecycle to truly deliver great value to your customers.
