Application lifecycle management (ALM) provides a framework for aligning software deliverables to business requirements.
All aspects of the software development life cycle and the software deployment can be managed using tools that integrate requirements, design, coding, testing, deployment, and release management.
For the past twelve years, we have pioneered application life cycle management. As a result, we have the experience to deploy powerful solutions that use automation to bring maximum efficiency to your business. We not only produce our own application lifecycle management products but also specialise in HP, IBM, Microsoft and Open Source solutions. This enables us to address our customers’ requirements with the best solutions available.
Automated ALM solutions
We are a leader in automation services across the whole software life cycle and our experts are able to deliver solutions across the whole life cycle.
Examples of the solutions that we have deployed include:
- Integration of HP Continuous Development Automation (CDA) and HP ALM
- Implementation of IBM Rational CLM (RRC, RTC and RQM)
- Implementation of automated build and deployment of software using Microsoft Visual Studio and Team Build
- Using TaskTop to synchronise HP ALM11, HP QC10 and Jira 5 across various customer sites
Automated application deployment (operations life cycle management)
The natural extension of the software development life cycle is concerned with the deployment of applications to production and the subsequent service management of these applications.
Automated application deployment is becoming increasingly important as development cycles become shorter while the applications become more complex.
We can build and deploy an application automatically using ALM tools and thus provide full support for the software life cycle ranging from project inception, coding, build, release management, testing and deployment to production.

Using the technical expertise of Automation Consultants' people we have been able to identify and fix problems very early in the migration process thus saving valuable time.

In an agile workflow changes to source code should be deployed and tested early and often – as soon as there is a working component you try it out straight away. After working with Automation Consultants all the developer had to do was click a button and wait 20 minutes to register the changes to the advertising platform.
