Application lifecycle management methodology: Benefits for the entire organization
Introducing application lifecycle management (ALM) methodology brings significant benefits not only to development teams but also to an entire organization. ALM tools replace various point solutions that are used in business operations, which can result in more effective cooperation between multiple (even geographically dispersed) teams and enable easier coordination of people, processes, and data involved in projects. Thanks to collaboration, communication, and requirements-management facilities, application lifecycle management also allows a better combination of business activities with software development. As a consequence, business processes within an organization will be fully supported by robust applications, perfectly tailored to its users.
“I quickly saw the benefits of the procedures specified in an ALM tool from Remain Software. These [change management] procedures provide excellent repeatable workflow processes, so we no longer have worries about, for example, the transfer of developed software to the production machine.”

Improved way of working
Application lifecycle management stands also for a structured way of work. Due to standardization and automation of processes, ALM solutions allow developers and DevOps to not only deliver high-quality applications but also to significantly reduce the amount of time they need to spend on development, testing, deployment, and maintenance. Thanks to scheduling and time-planning functionalities, the use of application lifecycle management tools can result in decreased downtime, quicker time-to-market and therefore increased customer satisfaction.
"The reason to acquire ALM tool from Remain Software was the need for a secure procedure for the transfer of development work to a test and production environment. We were also looking for an accepted solution for auditing purposes to make certain that everything that is in production has correctly passed through the development process. We need to be sure that objects and sources belong to each other and have not been placed there incorrectly outside the control of the system.”
