Managing the Application Lifecycle Virtual Seminar
Applications are the lifeblood of operations and, often, the core value offered to customers. Yet as applications become richer and more complex -- involving services, Web and enterprise components and new delivery options – effective management is becoming increasingly difficult.
In this virtual seminar, application lifecycle management (ALM) experts show how a unified management practice that encompasses caretaking of applications from development through updates to retirement can increase development, delivery and maintenance.
Sessions cover these key topics:
- The ALM infrastructure
- The process of adopting ALM
- How ALM changes the roles of application developers, test and project managers
- The role of automated and integrated tools in driving management efficiency in development, delivery and maintenance of applications
- Approaches to planning, control, reporting, measurement and software change activities
- The usage of Agile practices in ALM
