Lifecycle Management

Managing the lifecycle from requirements through retirement

Why IBM for lifecycle management

Lifecycle Management is the process of managing business information throughout its lifecycle, from requirements through retirement. The lifecycle crosses different application systems, databases and storage media. By managing information properly over its lifetime, organizations are better equipped to deliver competitive offerings to the market faster and support business goals with less risk.

Organizations face challenges around lifecycle management. For example: new application functionality not deployed on schedule, unintentional disclosure of confidential data kept in test/development environments, application defects discovered after deployment, increased costs and poor performance. The day-to-day challenges of lifecycle management are exacerbated by the growth of data volumes.
