What is Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)?
Saturday, April 11, 2009
I've written a group of short articles on application lifecycle management, all of which will be published over the next few weeks. They were sponsored by Microsoft, but they're not focused on Microsoft technology or products. Instead, my goal was to help people think about ALM in what I believe is a more useful way.
The first of these papers to appear is What is Application Lifecycle Management?
Its main argument is that ALM is much more than just the traditional software development lifecycle. As usual, I think that understanding the big picture--having the right context for what you're doing--is essential.
