Power the application lifecycle management platform to support mobile apps
The world has been shaken by the come from mobile devices.
Today, smartphones have changed to our previous way of seeing the world, live, work, communicate, play is no longer as our parents did.
That’s the daily lives of the world’s population, interact with a device that is almost essential.
Who’d have thought it? What we cannot forget at home! Oh my God.
So, too, it is for the Company Trying always Keeping Employees Connected day, Clients and Partners. All this leads to management and upkeep all mobile software that has been brewing for years, but companies are not prepared for such demand of mobile applications or employee devices management.
A key point then is the process called Application Management Lifecycle existing applications
ALM Mobile define a strategy in place is a priority increasingly urgent for several reasons: The impact on revenue is On Top Of The List, in terms of sales, Customer Satisfaction and Employee Productivity, with each passing day. A successful mobile experience is increasingly critical ago.
Gartner predicted that Mobile Application Projects will outnumber PC projects by a ratio of four to one. And the exponential scale continues and will continue.
A feasible solution ALM Mobile is an absolute necessity, in view of the rapidly and continuously Markets and Functional Requirements are changing, we must be able to position ourselves to the demands of our customers as soon as possible and in the best way possible.
That is what will grant us a quality system and flexible MALM (Mobile App Lifecycle Management)
“The contribution that application development and delivery makes to a company’s business goals —making workers more productive, creating engaging customer experiences, and bringing new software products to market more successfully — must be more direct and successful. Software increasingly plays a central role in a firm’s ability to deliver new products and services or exploit new channels. Firms can no longer accept historical gulfs between business and application development and delivery teams as, increasingly, firms now expect to manage application development and delivery as a business and treat it as a competency.” 1
“The practices, processes and tools that aid in the management of the application lifecycle, specifically the workflow of producing or maintaining and application. It’s a broad concept that includes just about everything involved in producing an application – all of the organization, all of the process data, the testing and QA, revisions and the record –keeping and accountability
for the whole project”. 2
• Supervision of a software application from its initial planning through retirement.
• Also refers to how changes to an application are documented and tracked (Bug tracking,
• Helps to unify geographically dispersed teams.
• Helps to meet deadlines than keep getting shorter and shorter.
• Great quality.

2 “MarketScope for Application Lifecycle Management,” Jim Duggan, Matt Light, Thomas Murphy, Gartner, Inc.,
ALM (Application lifecycle management) as name indicate aims to governance and admin the lifecycle of an App.
The behind idea is to power the development in terms of productivity, let's see it:
Whats provides ALM?
Achieve productive applications, higher quality more refined, in less time, and therefore cheaper.
This is therefore a step set / cycles that ran on traditionally software, as replicated repository , quality source , running unit tests, oriented user interface or functional integration testing, packing , deploying, testing , installation code , distributions; ultimately the grouping set of tasks involving the company improved software , orchestras and automated, so that all industrialized process to work , without stops and errors.
Has DevOps killed Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)? If the question makes you dizzy, you’re probably not alone; after all, it seems like just a few years ago that ALM was a fresh, new idea — and a key component of most implementations of Agile. So what happened to ALM, and why would DevOps kill it (if that’s what actually happened)? First, a little history:
Before there was ALM (at least as a formal concept) there was PLM — Product Lifecycle Management.
PLM developed in the automobile industry in the 1980s, as an integrated set of practices for managing manufactured products throughout their lifecycles.
PLM integrated requirements and configuration management, computer-aided design and engineering, resource planning, product support, and all of the other key elements of a product’s lifecycle.
In the past, a development team might work independently using manual processes involucrate into waterfall development model and hand off the completed software application to an operations team for deployment and maintenance. The QA phases was certificates manually or semi manually, no completed and in many cases was a very slow. Also the deployment was addressed by the development team in exception of promote to production environments which was resolved by System Operators.
Now days, it is more likely that developers will use an agile model and remain involved with the application after deployment, working with business owners and operations to make incremental changes as needed.

DevOps is often associated with configuration management tools. Chef and Puppet are equally popular, according to RightScale, with each used by 32% of respondents. Within enterprises, Puppet has a small lead over Chef in terms of adoption (42% to 37%), while Chef is favored by SMB users (28% to 25%).
Ansible is quickly growing in popularity with a doubling of total usage (10%-20%) over the past year, and a 23% adoption rate at enterprise customers. Docker also made a dramatic jump over the past twelve months. 27% of total respondents claim to use Docker, up from 13% just a year ago.
So, What Does MALM Look Like?
Mobile Application Lifecycle Management is the future key of your Business Success.
Key to success in any Business sector.
Mobile ALM are the processes and set of best practices for planning, coding, testing and deploying applications that target on smartphones and tablet computers.
Notice the importance, the better your MALM system better its position in the mobile business, which will result in better positioning of your company, it is a critical process in the moment of history in which we live.
Reach a mobile ALM strategy is an urgent priority. Why?
o Revenue impact, in terms of sales.
o Customer satisfaction.
o Employee productivity.
o Due to increasing number of mobile applications, IT and development teams consider it a critical necessity in order to support an agile development process.
o It is considered a must, given how rapidly and continuously markets and functional requirements are changing.
o In short you can give your mobile applications faster with better quality in less time and with fewer operators, automated the entire manufacturing process and deployment.
More for less, the sooner have my product located on mobile devices, the sooner you can update and redeploy & public on the stores, the sooner have corrected my mistakes and problems and also the most economical way. Best!
We have to put our focus in the mobile device.
This artifact is the most used in the history in minor time by the biggest amount the people in the world.
The revolution is here and we have to respond to the demand as soon as possible.
