Making the complex simple

Technology factors are now driving more organisational change than any other force and the ability to execute software technology projects to meet stakeholder expectations has never been more critical. Application lifecycle management (ALM) software assists with the coordination and flow of people, processes and information for more efficient software delivery.

Effective ALM can help organisations build better products and services by improving software project success rates and controlling costs associated with software errors and defects.

IBM Rational® software can help reduce the high costs and risks of inefficient software delivery with an integrated, collaborative and agile approach to ALM. Built on the single open, extensible, integrated Jazz™ platform, IBM's ALM platform allows all stakeholders real-time collaboration and transparency in the context of their own tasks and responsibilities. This approach enables automation and better process control from initial requirements definition to software change and release management and beyond.
