The book introduces a new vision for managing change in requirements and process more efficiently and flexibly. It synthesizes technical and functional elements to provide a comprehensive approach to software development. About the Technology Agile Application Lifecycle Management (Agile ALM) combines flexible processes with lightweight tools in a comprehensive and practical approach to building, testing, integrating, and deploying software. Taking an agile approach to ALM improves product quality, reduces time to market, and makes for happier developers.
