Application Lifecycle Management – careful configuration means increased efficiency

Application Lifecycle Management
SQS Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) links the design, development and use of applications. Starting with consulting on Configuration Management, followed by the Change Management Process and Managed ALM Services, SQS experts will help you with all the relevant steps and work with you to create cross-process workflows and a consistent base data set. SQS operates according to clear principles: as well as keeping an eye on development and operation, we maintain an overview of product lifecycles. This enables all companies to maintain an overview of the important data. This makes it easier to provide evidence of conformity with norms, standards, guidelines and process models. Result:  targeted communication between processes creates transparency, minimises risks and facilitates process control.

It’s all about software configuration

Nowadays, a fast and efficient business process is essential for commercial success. This is the purpose of IT systems. Many best practices – such as the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) – define how companies should implement and manage business-specific IT services. But what we see in practice is often the opposite. Instead of standardised data storage, different software systems and databases are often deployed. This leads to a great deal of redundant input, resulting in data silos, which are very hard to connect across the company and therefore unusable. This results in a lack of transparency affecting the control data for your development and operational processes. In this type of system environment, each process uses its own tool.
Unlinked process data makes it very difficult to harmonise and standardise individual processes. Various stand-alone data sources, which are often inconsistent or redundant, also make it difficult to manage and track the production processes.


Change Management optimises processes

This is where SQS Application Lifecycle Management comes in. It is based on a Change Management Process, which aims to optimise the application process, so that the IT infrastructure can be operated in a controlled and efficient way, while minimising risks during day-to-day operation. Application Lifecycle Management describes the design, development and operation of software products from every angle. By linking tools and consolidating data from the various areas, ALM integrates different software development and operation processes.

This solution harmonises workflows and facilitates the transition from a process to a service-oriented approach. Application Lifecycle Management therefore aims to link application (app) development (service creation) with application operation (service management), provide services for applications and ultimately ensure greater transparency for the application systems throughout the product lifecycle.

  1. Processes and tools: We advise you on how to link processes, development, operation and how to choose suitable toolsets.
  2. Service orientation: We work with you to create cross-process workflows and a consistent base data set.
  3. Transparency: We define raw data and metrics for communication between processes. This promotes transparency and makes it possible to detect risks at an early stage and manage processes.
  4. Compliance: You keep an overview of all your important data. This makes it easy for you to provide evidence of conformity with norms, standards, guidelines and process models.
  5. Consistency: We take a holistic view of software and hardware lifecycles and support overall planning with no redundant data storage.
  6. Collaboration: We keep a close eye on how development and operations interact, in order to achieve problem-free live implementation.
