ALM 2.0 – Adopting Open Source Collaboration to Develop Better Software, Faster*
This presentation explains how to take advantage of open source collaborative best practices to effectively work across distributed development teams.
Corporate software development organizations have long sought to connect development tools that support individual development life-cycle activities like requirements management, project management, coding, SCM, testing, and build and release management. This challenge has prevented developers from effectively collaborating, enforcing processes, tracing artifact relationships, and gathering meaningful metrics across the full development life cycle.
Now, a new generation of tools is driving ALM 2.0. This presentation explains how to take advantage of open source collaborative best practices to effectively work across distributed development teams. ALM 2.0 tools, dynamics, and processes needed to ensure rapid internal adoption and ROI will also be discussed.
