Cloud, mobile delivery and service-based composite applications are market-disrupting technologies that are bringing greater complexity to the application development process. On top of these challenges, IT budgets are constantly shrinking. IT organisations are required to do more with less and hence are looking for solutions to increase productivity and operate with less cost.
To address these challenges, it is becoming more important to have a management platform for application lifecycle management (ALM). ALM has evolved to align all application teams to the process of planning, developing and testing software applications. It increases control, visibility and predictability for the process of building modern applications. It also enables change management, risk-based prioritisation and communication across disparate teams. But development teams are often resistant to participating in ALM, and without their cooperation, ALM cannot deliver all of its promised benefits.
This HP white paper explores the capabilities and benefits that the next phase of ALM must deliver in order to energize application lifecycle processes, serve the needs of the business, get developers involved, and help overcome these market disruptions.
