The Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) assessment provides a quick snap-shot of your organization's development capabilities across the entire Application Life-Cycle. Our ALM experts will come on site and conduct a deep ALM Assessment, surface best practices and identify key areas for investment. We will help you build the ALM implementation plan and execute against that plan.The implementation plan focuses on establishing the right processes, then enabling people to implement those processes, and then selecting the right technology to support your team members to repeatedly implement process and collaborate throughout the life cycle of your software projects.

You want to adopt Team Foundation Server, but you’re not sure where to start, what to do, how to integrate your existing environment, migrate legacy data, are you going to change your development methodology as part of this transition? How will your QA team adopt TFS? During this assessment, we’ll facilitate interviews & workshops to examine how you develop software, what tools & process you follow, and what are the areas for improvement.

Then we’ll explore how TFS can fit in with what you do now and create a vision of how it can improve your software development processes. This engagement is typically short from 4 to 6 days and includes a follow up presentation & report identifying recommendations for the ALM implementation and process improvements that can be made along the way in a pragmatic approach. At the end of this engagement, you’ll also have a good idea of what licenses you need to purchase, and we can help you define that to maximize your investment.
