Rommana Software: Full Control, Full Traceability through Fully Integrated ALM

Dr. Magdy Hanna, Founder, CEO and Chief Architect
Complete integration of all artifacts within an application lifecycle has become an increasingly critical requirement for today’s CIOs and technical managers. Providing an answer to this demand by integrating these artifacts within a single application life cycle is Plymouth, MN based, Rommana Software. The company’s Application Life Cycle Management (ALM) uses one repository to store all artifacts produced during an application lifecycle and it makes those artifices accessible in real time to all project teams across the globe.

Dr. Magdy Hanna, Founder, CEO and Chief Architect, Rommana Software believes that the ALM support of seamlessness treatment of agile and non-agile projects is another challenge. Most tools are either agile or non-agile, and a company has to invest in two different sets of tools. Rommana ALM caters to this requirement by making it very intuitive to switch between agile and non-agile practices.

Rommana provides fully-integrated web-based ALM suite and methodologies to assist organizations to gain control over their projects. “We offer several functionalities in the ALM space including requirement management, test, use case, issue, change, release and iteration, collaboration and document management,” says Hanna. The Rommana requirement management component enables users to define functional and quality requirements and other types of needs, as it fits within the project. However, in the case of Rommana test management component, users can follow SBTM, a scenario based methodology for developing and testing, to design test scenarios, cases and scripts. Rommana’s project management components use Featured-Based Project Management, an approach that is patent-pending by the company. Additionally, Rommana’s use case management component helps users to define use cases to provide additional details for a requirement.The tools can also be used to auto-validate use cases for completeness. With the issue management component, the company provides traceability of bug reports to test cases, use cases and requirements.
Rommana’s change management component helps in creating change requests, either based on an existing requirement or just a new feature.Whereas, the release and iteration management component maintains product and release backlogs and closely manages progress through enhanced burn down chart. Moreover, using Romanna’s collaboration and document management component, team members and customer can collaborate on any project activity or issue and create and maintain different types of documents and models.

“Rommana ALM is available both as hosted solution and in the cloud even on a subscription basis,” says Hanna. “We have hosted it on our own secure and reliable servers and the customers can simply subscribe to it without paying for the license; that’s how we leverage the cloud,” he adds. Rommana ALM delivers total control, integration, management, simplicity, traceability, seamlessness, and full collaboration.

Hanna further elucidates that Rommana helps clients to document thousands of requirements within hours. For instance, a large government contractor had numerous clients who had different requirements and expectations of the tools that were used. Rommana implemented the bulk requirement-importing feature to parse all the documents and bring thousands of requirements into Rommana ALM.

Successful in offering its wide array of solutions to several companies, the company has won several accolades for being the best cloud solution in the ALM landscape, the best ALM Tool, and the best requirement management tool. In light of this, Hanna foresees a bright future, focused on customer satisfaction and innovation.
