Techopedia Explains Agile Application Life Cycle Management

Agile ALM is primarily used to add up agile values, frameworks and strategies within the application lifecycle. It is designed to provide an integrated approach to ALM by improvising the people side of application development and increasing collaboration among stakeholders. Some of the key components/phases of an agile ALM include collaborative development, task-based development, functional and technical release management, quality assurance and stakeholder focus.

Moreover, agile ALM is built on an open architecture/framework that is flexible enough to add more functions. It is also receptive to change and able to create relationships between organizations, development strategies and people(s).
