Oracle Team Productivity Center is an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tool that enables software development teams to collaborate and work productively together when developing applications using JDeveloper. Application Lifecycle Management can be described as the management of the lifecycle development practices (requirements, build, test, change control, defect management etc) integrated together through application of process, reporting, traceability and collaboration. The better this integration, the better the software. However, in the past many of these practices worked in isolation - in functional silos that did not lend themselves to collaboration. However, collaboration has become increasingly necessary in the software development world where teams work across organizations, time zones, cultures and business functions.
