Application lifecycle management (ALM) delivers governance, development, and maintenance for application software. Requirements management; design; build; testing; and change, integration, project, and release management are major elements of ALM. The modern software development process is complex. The traditional software development lifecycle (SDLC) applies only to the development process, while ALM works for the entire application lifecycle, from planning to deployment. ALM software solutions enable software development teams to manage their project status from requirements to delivering releases and also help organizations fulfill their business goals. ALM software solutions are now adopted in many industries, including automotive, healthcare, and even BFSI.
The rapid uptake of mobile devices and the growth in the number of browsers/platforms globally has generated the creation of a large number of mobile applications that require an efficient application development lifecycle. The growing number of mobile devices would also lead to multiplatform complexity, which in turn increases the demand for ALM solutions. The need for greater efficiency across teams and increased engineering productivity are also factors that drive the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Market, globally.
Challenges such as lack of visibility in requirement management, poor communication, and lack of traceability between requirements and other artifacts through the software development lifecycle swell the growth of the ALM market. With ALM software, engineering, development, and quality assurance teams are more productive and deliver quick output, increasing the efficiency across the software development teams as well as accurate allocation of human and technology resources.
