Incorporating Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) into their ICT strategy helps companies to optimize their software development cycles by improving efficiency and removing overhead. ALM is about leveraging the right tools, processes and standards to improve software delivery across the complete IT project lifecycle. As a result, business’ agility will increase and related costs will drastically reduce.
RealDolmen has more than two decades of experience ICT projects and can help companies to transform their application development efforts from a cost centre into a valuable business asset;
“We make ICT work for your business”.
Throughout 2012 RealDolmen is organizing presentations and workshops to explain our vision on how Application Lifecycle Management can improve software delivery in ICT teams.
ALM is a topic that spans involvement from both business and ICT divisions. As the sphere of interest varies between both worlds, we can offer separate sessions focusing on a different point of view:
To explain the business benefits associated with ALM, we offer a presentation with the Management Overview of ALM. We will go into detail about the impact of ALM on your company’s ICT strategy, explain impact on the overall costs and clarify the increased added business value and Return On Investment. This presentation is typically directed at CIO’s, IT Managers and project sponsors.

Interactive sessions detailing the “Technological Picture” elaborate more on how we see the technological tooling to support the ALM strategy at RealDolmen. We will show how it figures into the management of a development project, highlight the tools that we prefer to work with in ICT projects using Java and open source technologies. This technical session allows customers to explore the possibilities of the tools by means of a presentation and demonstration of about 2 hours. This session is typically directed at architects, project managers and IT staff.

Bamboo is Atlassion's solution for continuous code integration. A continuous integration system is a scalable build server that automatically compiles and tests code as it changes. It provides instant feedback for developers and allows quick collaboration.
30 min Code quality measurement with "Sonar"
Codehaus Sonar is an open source platform to measure the quality of code. Sonar embeds a number of static code analyses tools including CheckStyle, PMD, FindBugs, etc. By integrating these modules into a unified dashboard, Sonar easily calculates the overall quality index of the project taking 7 domains into account.
