Application Lifecycle Management: Processes & Methods to support ALM

Mark Smalley, Ambassador-in-chief at the ASL BiSL Foundation says:

“With business productivity and cost reduction, along business agility and speed to market, being the top IT management concerns (research: Prof Jerry Luftman), it’s no wonder that IT departments are increasingly engaging with the business to discover which Application Lifecycle Management investments will provide maximum business value.”

In 2010, Cofunds embarked upon a challenging Change Programme to meet the changes in market demands and new FSA regulation. They recognised that the huge programme of work would impact the way the software platform was to be built and maintained in the future. To help ensure success the IT team decided to embark on a journey that reviewed and improved their process and the associated tools; their entire ALM.

Jim McGlynn, Head of IT Development at Cofunds, will describe their ALM journey at UNICOM Seminar’s Application Lifecycle Management: Processes and Methods to Support ALM Conference on 28 February ’13. He will openly share his real life experiences, concentrate on the problems, issues and successes and discuss the crucial aspects that must drive your ALM.

Jim will be joined by other thought leaders in the field. The conference will include technical sessions to educate practitioners on tools and strategies, to adjust and evolve their application development lifecycle and explore how to implement ALM.

Cloud computing, Agile methodologies and DevOps have changed the requirements of a develop-ment infrastructure. Whether you develop in the cloud or for the cloud – traditional ALM solutions run short without modernization and extension. The presentation provides thoughts and ideas on what a modern platform should provide as a service to the developers, takes a look into the spe-cialties of system engineering, embedded software and the co-existence with PLM: Finally, it gives you a framework that should with guidelines to decide, where your infrastructure is today and what the next steps should look like to upgrade it into a Cloud-ready state.
