Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)

Focus on requirements and how your application should function to meet user needs. Enable an end-to-end holistic approach to ALM using ProcessX.

Application lifecycle management (ALM) oversees the initial planning and development of a software application. It involves testing and maintenance while the application is in use and creating a plan for decommissioning and retirement.

From end to end, ALM includes tasks for: 

  • Requirements management and project scope 
  • Software architecture and programming 
  • Software testing and maintenance 
  • Risk identification and management 
  • Continuous integration 
  • Change management 
  • Release management 
  • Decommissioning

The Importance of ALM

ALM provides a roadmap for application development and helps organizations focus on meeting user needs. It incorporates test strategies for verification and validation throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

When it’s time for decommissioning, ALM specifies a data migration strategy to ensure a smooth and efficient process.

Application lifecycle management helps your organization to: 

  • Improve collaboration and communication 
  • Have more visibility into workflows 
  • Maintain compliance requirements 
  • Deploy applications faster 
  • Deliver high-quality apps 
  • Prepare for app retirement

Maintain a Continuous State of Compliance

USDM provides a vendor assurance report for every technology vendor it partners with. It details how well the vendor follows the SDLC and addresses quality. The report saves you time auditing these vendors and ensures that they are qualified to provide products and services that you need. USDM Cloud Assurance for ProcessX delivers a validation and impact assessment after every patch and upgrade to the ServiceNow platform and provides the necessary validation documentation.

Cloud Assurance helps your organization automate, streamline, and simplify GxP compliance. Some customers use the validation lifecycle management platform and have an integrated approach to managing their systems. For other customers, Cloud Assurance does only post-release testing or change management analysis. Whatever you need, we’re here to help


With real-time updates and total GxP system status transparency, IT and Quality leaders know that their systems are in a controlled state. ProcessX helps to automate processes like: 

  • IT change management 
  • Regulatory applicability assessments 
  • Risk assessment and change impact analyses 
  • Effectiveness monitoring 
  • Testing
