ALM tools: past, present and future

Download presentation



After a long incubation, ALM market is (finally) getting into maturity. Application Development and its supporting environments and tools are now entering an historic time.

So, while the largest part of the actual proposition of tools follows a pretty old concept that is strongly rooted in the waterfall model of software development, there are some raising stars that are finally going to extinguish dinosaur technologies.

The market is no longer willing to accept disconnected islands of automation that, once put in the same box, vendors’ marketing departments call “ALM”. The actual trend is to create single foundations that embed most of the features needed by ALM users, with a high degree of flexibility and good integration capabilities with existing corporate assets.

The future looks bright: instant collaboration, mobile access, embedded process knowledge, statements management, forensic reporting are just few examples of what an ALM user should expect to have soon.

In this presentation we will take a look into what an ALM user or evaluator should expect today and tomorrow in terms of ALM practices and supporting tools.
