Though efficiency of thesoftware may lead to reduction in turn around time, the presence of budgetary constraints and therequirement of quality products, leads enterprises consider new application developments achallenge.The software development life cycle with its various different stages from initiation to conceptdevelopment, planning , requirement analysis, design development integration, testing to implementation and maintenance are interdependent. However, as per the requirements in sizeand complexity of the project these various stages can also be combined or overlapped. Further toincrease the efficiency of software development, enterprises can coordinate the softwaredevelopment activities with application lifecycle management . Forrester defines application lifecyclemanagement as "the coordination of development life-cycle activities, including requirements,modeling, development, build, and testing, through:  enforcement of processes that span these activities  management of relationships between development artifacts used or produced by these activities  reporting on progress of the development effort as a whole."Application Lifecycle Management is thus a synchronization of various activities that will enablesoftware development teams to work on development of high quality software applications evenwith constraints on time and cost. ALM system being a continuous process for managing thelifecycle of applications makes use of software engineering tools for requirements management,requirements traceability matrix ,testing, issues management, risk management, releasemanagement, project management, document management, test automation and debugging. Theuse of these tools help in enhancing the productivity and quality standards and improves the deliverymechanism across global teams by breaking through the boundaries. The strength of the applicationmanagement system lies in its traceability and reporting analytics customized integration of tools.Leading service providers offer global enterprises application lifecycle management system anautomated web-based management system that has the ability to incorporate traditional as well asagile methodology.
