HP has introduced the first unified system HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) 11 that the company says will accelerate the reliable, secure delivery of software applications and services across heterogeneous environments.
HP ALM 11, which is a role-based system, unites and automates the critical activities of modernisation applications – from requirements management to quality, performance and release; as well as supports stakeholders in the applications delivery process and integrates with major development tools.
The new platform automates workflow processes within and across applications teams, enforcing and accelerating best practice application lifecycle management.
HP ALM 11 features include project planning and tracking for establishing release criteria, three-way traceability between requirements, development and quality artifacts, flexible methodology for supporting optimise delivery approach by project type, lower enterprise risk and reduced costs and delivery time.
HP ALM provides the foundation for the new versions of HP Quality Center and HP Performance Center 11.0, which help simplify and automate application quality and performance validation to lower operational costs, freeing up resources for new applications and services, the company said.
Accelerated application deployment, improved test creation with HP TruClient, reduction of an application’s functional defects for both GUI and non-GUI testing with a single automated solution for composite applications with the HP Unified Functional Testing 11.0 are some of the benefits of the new system.
HP executive vice president of Software and Solutions Bill Veghte said HP’s new offerings enable clients to accelerate the delivery of applications, lower application costs and achieve business alignment without sacrificing quality.
HP ALM 11 is a component of the HP Application Transformation portfolio, which helps enterprises gain control over aging applications and inflexible processes.
