By Michael Hüttermann


Agile ALM is a consultant for Java builders who are looking to combine versatile agile practices and light-weight tooling alongside all levels of the software program improvement technique. The publication introduces a brand new imaginative and prescient for handling swap in necessities and technique extra successfully and flexibly. It synthesizes technical and useful components to supply a complete method of software program development.
About the Technology
Agile software Lifecycle administration (Agile ALM) combines versatile procedures with light-weight instruments in a complete and useful method of construction, trying out, integrating, and deploying software program. Taking an agile method of ALM improves product caliber, reduces time to marketplace, and makes for happier developers.

Sample text

In this section, we’ll consider that question in the context of software releases and service orientation. We’ll also discuss how important it is to be focused on the stakeholders’ needs and to use a task-based approach. We’ll consider configurable, pluggable systems and standards. Finally, we’ll talk about what it means to use and cope with “polyglot” environments, with their many languages and technologies, and how to apply open source methods and automation. The tools we’ll cover in this book will enable you to implement and support these building blocks.

This approach helps to make the ALM more Agile and leads to what I call Agile ALM. This chapter introduces the concepts that are essential to understanding Agile ALM, including the evolution of software engineering with its migration to Agile ALM. I’ll also discuss the essential impact that SCM (and version control) has had on ALM, including some of the first pilot projects to use Agile and ALM together. In addition, I’ll explain my view that SCM is the basis of ALM and how these practices help develop ALM today.

With a lightweight toolchain, you should watch the market continuously and acquire new tools with better features as they become available. There are many open source tools available, but only successful open source products have a broad supportive community. If the community is supportive and the products are powerful, as well as easy to use, they’ll maintain a leading market position by attracting more people to invest time in further developing the product. If new open source competitors surpass a former market leader, it can be dangerous to ignore this development.
