    Abstract

    In this paper, we present empirical research where the applicability of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) for the management of distributed software development projects was studied in the context of the automation industry. The research analyses the ALM solutions of the case company against the ALM framework and, further, considers how the solutions meet the functions of the 3C-model. According to our results, ALM can support a distributed project by facilitating communication, cooperation and coordination. In our case, a central ALM database with common processes and tools enabled central orchestration for the software projects that operated in a global development environment.
