Enhanced Agility for Competent Software Development

Software research and development is a vital function and it requires collaboration of high intensities and transparency to enable the team to work cohesively and in alignment with the business objectives. Most of the organizations fail to provide favorable environments and conditions to the teams and the entire operation loses its steam. The team is unable to move ahead at the same pace due to deficient real time collaborations, thus affecting agility adversely. The software development businesses require an integrated suite of application lifecycle management tools for distributed agile development.

The application lifecycle management tools facilitate real-time visibility through reports and dashboards which enhances collaboration. They help to trace the process from end to end, beginning from requirements management, through the application and testing stages till the release of the product. The high visibility facilitates the teams to detect hindrances and restrictions and boosts product development. Businesses can efficiently assess the product requirements while aligning with the business goals through these tools. The tools provide a supportive link between the requirements and help the engineering teams to be acclimatized with the change in priorities and respond affirmatively.

The application lifecycle management tools help the project managers to competently handle release planning, capacity planning, sprint planning and risk management processes which results in enforcement of a regulated agile project management process. The release planning services they provide include preparing the release backlog, identifying the numbers, duration and the type of each sprint in a release. The capacity planning service facilitates managers in creation of sprint backlogs and in allocation of optimum engineering bandwidth during sprint planning. The risk management service includes assistance in identifying, analyzing, planning, tracking and controlling the risks in the product development process.

These tools provide best management practices as they initiate a powerful traceability function for business requirements, test cases and execution results as well as defects. The increased visibility helps the business to identify any factors that affect quality in product development and ensures effective remediation steps. These tools provide comprehensive independent verification and quality assurance services with emphasis on unit, multi-unit and system testing, user acceptance testing, functional testing, performance testing, user interface and usability testing, installation testing, configuration testing, security testing, products integration testing, technical documentation testing, regression testing, localization and international testing.
The tools provide compelling analytic and reporting services that help the teams to predict their agility levels in the development process. Their integrative traits leverage build management processes.
