IDC Analyst Connection: Driving End-to-End Mobile Application Life-Cycle Management

Application deployment complexity and an explosion of business reliance on mobile applications are driving demand for targeted, collaborative, and agile application life-cycle management (ALM). Fractured approaches to areas such as requirements, quality, security, and portfolio planning are not viable where competitive pressures are fierce to deploy across complex multimodal platforms and environments. Margins are thin and software vulnerabilities are highly visible to both stakeholders and broad B2C audiences. Effective software delivery remains intimately tied to earlier life-cycle phases for both agility and consistent deployment (such as requirements, architectural design, quality, change management, and security).
