Application Lifecycle Management

Just like human beings, application software has a lifecycle. And just like us, that software needs care and attention at every stage of its working life.

Application lifecycle management is the name we give to the process of planning, developing, testing and running applications, so that, all through their lifecycle, they contribute as much as possible to the organisation, and give the best value for the resources we put into them.


  • Quality management throughout the product and application lifecycle
    The quest for business transformation through innovation and increasing reliance on software to deliver that innovation, while at the same time reducing risk and cost, mandates a more rigorous approach to managing software quality.
  • A Rational approach to integration testing
    Applications are evolving at an ever-faster pace. These applications are not discrete islands; they build on a complex, interconnected set of services that includes disparate technologies, developers, deployment topologies and organizations. Developers must deliver high-quality applications while limiting their testing expenses. In this challenging environment, a combination of automated integration testing and test virtualization can enable test teams to improve quality and keep up with the rate of change.
