ALM in Geographically Distributed Development Environments

ALM in Geographically Distributed Development Environments

Geographically distributed development projects are at a particularly high risk for failure. Their communications challenges compound the difficulties of governance and management across ALM disciplines. ALM tools that help to automate and synchronize processes in mixed development environments using mixed methodologies can help teams to overcome the challenges of working with strangers in different time zones. A formal Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and change management infrastructure significantly increases the chances of project success for geographically distributed software development teams. Only rigorous and robust management of every step of the application development lifecycle will enable organizations to overcome the challenges of application development with geographically distributed teams. If companies are to realize the cost savings potential of outsourced development—and end up with highquality applications delivered on schedule—they must implement comprehensive ALM tools and processes.
