Today, we take great pleasure in announcing the Kovair ALM Product that contains a single data repository package of key applications that include Requirements, Test, Issues, Risk and Release Management along with Project Management capabilities; all of them linked to each other through the Kovair single data repository along with Kovair’s Omniprocess work flow engine orchestrating the desired configurable process for the development life cycle of any applications development project. These core tools from Kovair for any application development effort are further integrated with modeling tools (the Rational Software Modeler, the Visual Studio Team System Architect) the desired IDEs (Eclipse, Visual Studio and the Rational Applications Developer), the automatic test tools (HP Quick Test Pro, the Rational Functional Tester) and the Configuration Management Systems (Subversion, Perforce, ClearCase and Microsoft TFS) with integration adapters built around the Kovair Omnibus Integration Middleware technology.
The following graphical representation makes it very simple to comprehend and so let us have the picture tell the entire story! A close examination of the graphics indicates that with the ALM from Kovair and with its Omnibus Middleware based integrations that are available off the shelf form Kovair, we have easily created ALM 2.0 or an End to End Integrated ALM. We are pleased to communicate that this is here and now and that Kovair can demonstrate it today and you can consider it for your true ALM 2.0 implementation and go on to improve your traceability, quality, delivery, management visibility and achieve considerable cost reductions in your applications development lifecycle.
Kovair has just published a Press Release on Marketwire for this announcement which can be accessed from our website at www.kovair.com
Besides the integrated development environment within ALM and outside it with the Omnibus integrations, some of the key features of the ALM are its excellent Requirements Management capabilities for which Kovair is being recognized more and more in the market, considerably enhanced test management capabilities that are now very comprehensive along with integrations with some of the market leaders in automated testing. Resource Management capabilities for resource requirements and allocations and “What If Analysis” for Release or Project schedules are included in the application. With Gantt charts and multiple Dashboards, the ALM can also serve as a good tool for Project Resource Management and Planning.
