Application Lifecycle Management – SourceGear Fortress

Posted on Tuesday 15 May 2007

FortressOne area of software development that is currently out of range for small companies is good application lifecycle management (ALM) software. There are some solutions out there, but they require very expensive licenses and pretty complicated server setup. That’s why I was excited to hear that SourceGear (a Micro ISV) has announced an upcoming product called SourceGear Fortress to address the ALM needs of small and medium-sized software teams. (Note: I haven’t tried the software, but I’m so happy to see an ALM product on the market, that I’m happy to give them a plug.)

If you want to read a good article on requirements, check out Eric Sink’s latest blog article on requirements. It’s a good read and I like Eric’s attitude towards software development. (Eric is the founder of SourceGear, by the way.)

    Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

    Being a literal kinda guy, it was obvious to me that an ALM would manage the lifecycle of an application. Of course I HAD no clue what that actually meant, but after reading Eric’s article I’ve collected a clue or two. It was an interesting read.

    Since small company can degenerate down to single developer, it is cool to find products that could be used to improve on an individual’s personal development process. Might help so I could develop real software someday. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle requirements.

    I also like to read Eric’s blogs.
