Product and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)

The introduction of ALM tools has a positive impact on the following areas:

  • time:
    • reduce time to market by improving collaboration between all internal departments and external partners
    • effective requirements management and change control reduces the risk of late-stage changes
    • agile, waterfall and hybrid development methodologies are supported in the implementation phase
  • cost:
    • supporting the identification of the most effective alternative solutions that meet the product requirements and features
    • improved efficiency of the requirements definition and management process in the design phase reduces product costs
    • higher product quality leads to lower costs due to the elimination of quality problems
  • quality:
    • improved communication of requirements and continuous validation of requirements has a positive impact on product quality
    • proper management in the development and testing phase leads to all types of requirements being met
  • revenue:
    • products that meet customer requirements are more likely to achieve a higher market share and increased revenues
  • accelerating software innovation:
    • a critical factor for companies that use software to differentiate their products in fast-growing industries by linking ALM to their development platforms
  • simplified compliance & auditing:
    • incorporating standards and regulatory requirements such as ISO26262, 21 CFR Part 11 and DO-178C into all phases of product development leads to ongoing compliance with external requirements
    • further simplifying and automating audit preparation
