What Is the Application Lifecycle?
The application lifecycle includes requirements, tests, and issues. It runs continuously up until a product reaches end of life.
But many organizations struggle to effectively manage the application lifecycle. This typically happens if they have a different tool for each element — e.g., requirements in Microsoft Word, test cases in Microsoft Excel, and bugs in Jira.
Sound familiar? Then you need application lifecycle management.
Why You Need Application Lifecycle Management
You need application lifecycle management to ship quality releases on time.
You’ll struggle to link requirements to tests and issues. This can cause productivity losses. And if you need traceability for proving compliance, you’ll be in trouble.
It’ll be impossible to get visibility into your project status. You might know what’s going on in some areas of application development. But getting the full picture will be a challenge.
Collaborating across teams — especially teams spread around the world — will be difficult. It’ll practically be a full-time job just to keep everyone on the same page.
