Application lifecycle management (ALM) provides a framework for aligning software deliverables to business requirements. All aspects of the software development lifecycle and the software deployment can be managed using tools that integrate requirements, design, coding, testing, deployment, and release management.
All application requirements need to be defined in detail as they're the starting point for successful project delivery. IT projects often fail as a result of poor requirements planning. Our customer solutions use automated repositories that accurately trace requirements across the whole project lifecycle for efficient requirements management.
Our ALM solutions provide mechanisms for visualising, analysing, and documenting both high level and low level designs. Automated links to requirements ensure that the intended solution is designed to specification.
Application code is developed using preferred technology specified by the design. Our ALM solutions have links to coding environments to ensure source code repositories are managed, requirements are met, and releases are version controlled.
Testing ensures what is developed is delivered according to original requirements from both a functional and non-functional perspective. Our ALM solutions provide evidence that tests have been run against requirements to ensure software is delivered according to customer specifications.
Automated deployment tools facilitate continuous integration across pre-production and production environments saving you time and money. These tools allow software releases to be deployed in hours rather than days enabling faster delivery timescales.
We help our customers automate the roll-out of updates and maintenance patches using leading ALM tools. In this way, they meet release deployment cycles so their applications are up to date and the best they can be.
