What is ALM?

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is the strategic process of managing a software or product lifecycle from initial idea through design, development, testing, deployment, and end of life. It enables software engineering teams to efficiently collaborate on projects using proven Agile practices and trusted up-to-date information.

Why is ALM important?

Smart, complex products are multifaceted and complicated to design, build, and manufacture. Their formation requires the specialized expertise of product management teams, mechanical, electrical, and electronics engineering teams, and software development teams working collaboratively towards common goals. Application lifecycle management helps teams manage the inherent complexity of modern software development. Most organisations are cutting costs by increasingly applying agile project management techniques to teams beyond the realm of software development, including marketing, operations, and hardware.
