The ALM 11 platform and software solutions are part of that "new way." Components of the HP Application Transformation solutions, these tools work to help enterprises gain control over aging applications and inflexible processes that challenge innovation and agility -- by governing their responsiveness and pace of change. It's all part of the Instant-On Enterprise that embeds technology into everything it does. ALM 11 essentially automates workflow processes across multiple teams.
"Applications are central to everything CIOs are doing right now," Rende says. "It's literally how companies are differentiating themselves -- and doing so in more efficient and effective ways with more value added. ALM 11 creates a single, unified system that allows business analysts, developers, security professionals, quality professionals and performance professionals to collaborate."
Rende also points to benefits such as risk-based decisions of application releases via ALM Project Planning and Tracking capabilities, rapid application delivery with HP Agile Accelerator 4.0, reduced business risk from application failures, and automatic import of business process models (BPM) into ALM's Requirements Management to visualize business process flows and augment textual requirements.
Rend notes that HP isn't working in a vacuum, either. "Everybody has a mix of different applications and environments. Many times they are cobbling them together and integrating because the business processes that are critical cut across many different systems," Rende says. "Our solution is agnostic to the technologies."
