ALM (Application Lifecycle Management)

Initially, Application Lifecycle Management was called Library Management. It was developer-oriented, limited in functionality (only the software source code was versioned) and static (collection of the different versions of the source code).

Later on, management also wanted to cover the complete development process.  This interest in the process aspect made software change management a more dynamic discipline.

Modern Application Lifecycle Management not only wants to address the development process and related downstream activities, but also the production environment (deployment) and the upstream activities like requirements management and issue tracking.

Today, ALM tools need to:

  • Serve the complete process
  • Be independent of the development methodology used (waterfall or extreme programming for example),
  • Give all stakeholders freedom of tools choice.
  • Pay attention to the needs of all stakeholders (both IT and non-IT related, internal and external)
