Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is described as the application of business management to the practice of software delivery unifying the practices of management, requirements, development, test and release into an integrated lifecycle. ALM is traditionally connected to tools and thus for many Agile advocates is in direct contradiction to the principles of Agility. But, as Agile becomes mainstream and scales to teams of teams the application of traditional business management and tools to the practice of Agility is crucial. Agility must move out of the Agile ghetto to embrace rather than shun ALM. It is time to consider flow and transparency, the key tenants of ALM in the context of Agile. In this talk Dave West, chief product officer of Tasktop and former Forrester Analyst describes what Agile ALM looks like and how organizations need to concentrate on the manufacturing process of software delivery and maintenance. Introducing an end to end, tool and practice based approach that supports rapid feedback, improved flow and management discipline.

In this talk Dave will cover the following points :-

• The challenge of Agile ALM
• Why ALM is a great friend to enterprise Agile
• Customer case studies and examples
• What it means to you
