Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solutions enable businesses to manage, harmonize and supervise software delivery processes from development to deployment.

ALM provides a successful framework for teams to ensure successful development, deployment, and ongoing maintenance of software applications. It enhances collaboration and integration of various tools and people involved in the process of software delivery. It also facilitates the team to manage the application, thereby, improving communication and collaboration during the entire lifecycle of the application.

Deploying an application lifecycle management platform, helps businesses implement both agile and DevOps development approaches for different functions to cooperate seamlessly. ALM consists of every stage of an application’s lifetime whereas the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) includes the development side of an application, making SDLC a part of ALM.

ALM solutions help businesses to develop accurate applications and ensure quality output by facilitating software development teams to stay closely aligned throughout the software development lifecycle.



SAP Cloud ALM is a comprehensive cloud-based suite for application lifecycle management that provides implementational and operational capabilities for businesses. With this solution, businesses can operate SAP solutions and implement them – whether it is process, test, deploy, or task management. Existing SAP cloud customers can use SAP Cloud ALM without additional cost or added hardware as it is part of the Enterprise Level Support Contract.

Businesses use SAP Cloud ALM to carry out business process monitoring, health monitoring, and end-user and overall performance monitoring.

ALM is divided into development, governance, and operations. It commences from the idea and deployment and ends with the final phase where the application detaches from the service system.

  • Governance phase: This phase involves managing the lifecycle of an application. It starts with the construction of judgment and extends to administration.
  • Development phase: The phase between idea generation and consumption of the application is the development phase. This also has the scope to re-emerge numerous times either for upgrades or complete edition changes.
  • Operations phase: This includes efforts necessary to organize and handle applications that usually commence prior to deployment and run constantly up until the application is detached from service which is at the very end.

SAP Cloud ALM comes with a bundle of multiple ALM tools that can be used for implementation, project management, organizational planning, agile delivery support, task management, SAP process descriptions, testing, and change /deploy management. The dashboard and analytics tools also provide an effective view of the project situation including details of the fulfilled and planned time for new functionalities.
