20 Most Promising Application Lifecycle Management Solution Providers - 2016
The app economy is predicted to swell up to $101 billion by 2020. This will put a huge burden on the enterprises to support mobile applications across billions of devices globally. In response, application development software that support both enterprise and mobile applications have a humongous task at hand. Ensuring an organization doesn’t limp in this arduous journey into the future will require not only slashing an application’s time-to-market, but also rapidly deploying applications that are relevant, efficient, and can be effectively managed.
Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is not new for organizations, but citing the market dynamics, it is easy to predict that ALM is going to accept an even greater role. This comes in the wake of enterprises progressively migrating to agile practices from traditional waterfall model to meet the evolving market needs. This migration demands more than the basic attributes of ALM—real-time collaboration, application specific visibility, task allocation, and monitoring. There is a call for more advanced capabilities, such as access to better data for decisions, unification across a diverse set of lifecycle tools, and support to continuous delivery.
Driven by changing market requirements, the ALM space keeps evolving which makes zeroing in on an ALM platform difficult. The right choice is to opt for the one that satisfies an organization’s specific needs and provides tangible improvements to the ongoing processes. But, the right choice should also be flexible enough that it accommodates current processes while ensuring enough room for the possible changes that may occur during “future-proofing” attempts.
