by Tom Grant, ph.D., October 23, 2012

Key TaKeaWays
Leaders Build product strategy around aLM Use Cases
Forrester Wave evaluation Leaders IBM, Rally Software, PTC, CollabNet, Microsoft,
and Serena Software offer strong solutions for ALM problems that no single
pointsolution could address. Their product strategies focus on such challenges as
delivery and the disruptions of Agile adoption, not just throwing new capabilities at
the customer.
strong performers and Contenders Find a specific audience
Atlassian and Rocket Aldon don’t focus as much on specific use cases that span
many ALM activities. Instead, they build tools to address smaller but widespreadproblems, such as release management and developer collaboration. Meanwhile,
HP is expanding its ALM offering beyond Quality Center.
aLM is Going Through a period of Redefinition and innovation
Hot ALM issues such as DevOps, embedded software, and requirements definition
show how the concept of ALM has expanded and changed. During this transition,
the seemingly crowded ALM market will benefitfrom the innovation that comes
from a wealth of competing and complementary product offerings.
