Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) defines how a software application is managed from conception, through its creation and deployment, to its eventual retirement.

It's all about real-time collaboration, cross-team visibility, better project monitoring and reporting with an established process to develop quality software in less time.


Greetings visitor! Are you interest in delivery of quality software in less time? Then you have come to the right place. The ambition of this website is to guide and support you in the processes, disciplines and tools needed to create quality software faster.

ALM recognizes that requirements are evolved based on business needs or ideas for new opportunities. Applications are the foundation from which business processes are executed. Actively managing applications controls cost and provides the agility needed to quickly take advantage of increasingly faster paced business demands. Application development disciplines and methodologies are managed, integrated and processed in the body of ALM.


The purpose of governance is to make sure the application always provides what the business needs and covers the entire lifecycle.
