Technical Information

OpenText Application Lifecycle Management is designed to support key stakeholders responsible for delivering applications as they progress through their lifecycle. It is a combination of a common platform, several key applications and a dashboard targeted at managing the core lifecycle of applications, from design through readiness for delivery to operations.

All core lifecycle activities are connected from a workflow perspective with a common management console and a layer of project tracking and planning. They are built on a common software foundation containing a consistent repository and open integration architecture with a supported SDK.

The typical workflow of ALM Octane begins with creating requirements and backlog. Users can then:

  • Manage the backlog and track release quality
  • Track build quality
  • Incorporate test and build results into overall product quality
  • Track product quality

Throughout this process, users can analyze quality using dashboards.
