ALM Implementation

Expedite Business Proficiency by Implementing ALM

Enterprise IT organizations invest in centralized test management and reporting tools like Microfocus Quality Center (QC) or Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) to establish traceability across artifacts, achieve efficiency in testing, automate workflows and achieve visibility to the quality of apps throughout the delivery process. However, for attaining these goals, a structured approach with best practices and constant processes is required to implement and use QC/ALM.

ImpactQA’s professional services can assist you with a world-class implementation of QC/ALM to get high ROI from your investments. To keep pace, the elite software testing team is adopting a varied assortment of tools to automate and optimize the software delivery pipeline. In response, today’s toolchains now comprise best-in-class tools that span plentiful capabilities, product vendors, and team roles. The more efficiently and successfully these tools interact and integrate, the more efficiently team members can work and collaborate.

Our ALM solutions will assist you to reduce testing costs, attain better visibility across your project, alleviate risk and cost with low defect rates, accelerate efficiency of the testing process, improve implementation timelines, and improve software adoption
