Application Lifecycle Management

Heightened visibility, reduced risk, faster iteration

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is about codifying and automating your requirements-build-test-release process through Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment processes. It reduces your release management costs by helping you write better code, test more effectively, shorten your dev timeline, and discover operational issues early, before they’re spotted by your end user.

Adaptiv has more than 15 years’ experience in software delivery, and we have deployed ALM for a number of high profile New Zealand reference sites. Adaptiv regularly utilise tools such as Octopus Deploy and TeamCity for ALM deployments.

Adaptiv ALM assessment

The biggest barrier to ALM deployments is perceived cost. Many businesses that try deploying an ALM solution fail, because they are intent on re-inventing the wheel. At Adaptiv, we have deployed ALM enough to know what works and what doesn’t.

We offer a half-day assessment to see to what extent ALM can work in your environment. We find that many organisations are managing their source code repositories very well, but are weathering unnecessary costs (and missing bugs) by doing manual testing instead of automated testing. Other companies have a fantastic testing methodology, but their requirements documentation is a difficult-to-manage collection of Excel files.

Our approach is about finding which best-practice ALM solutions will save you money, and getting them in place quickly and efficiently. And, of course, we offer training and support for as long as you need it.
