One of the most desirable aspects of software development process for the last decade has been the evolution of Integrated Application Lifecycle Management-ALM. Integrated ALM today is also known as End-To-End ALM in some vendor literatures and websites. Fulfilling this promise by various vendors has been patchy at best. However, in the last 2 years, things are changing as new technologies are maturing in highly critical production systems, thereby bringing some of the long overdue benefits of Integrated ALM to real development.
Today, if an organization is not thinking about integrated ALM, it is missing some compelling benefits, which are discussed in a companion Whitepaper from Kovair “10 BENEFITS OF INTEGRATED ALM”.
