    Abstract

    In this paper we present an industrial study about the history of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) improvement in a case company. The study is part of broader research with the aim to improve global development in a company. The improvement of ALM started three years ago when the company decided to acquire a commercial ALM solution. Two SW teams developing different kinds of SW products started to pilot the solution and after various steps ended up with fairly different ALM solutions. This paper concludes the history and experiences of ALM improvement and discusses the reasons why two teams ended up with different solutions. The improvement of ALM solutions has been facilitated with the use of an ALM framework.
