IT Lifecycle Management

IT lifecycle management is the management of processes that support an application from birth to retirement. It ensures that software delivers business value by translating requirements into better project outcomes and establishing a process that focuses on transforming business needs into business value.

Traceability is one of the advantages that Rocket IT lifecycle management provides your organization. Traceability makes possible sophisticated data exploration, such as compliance verification, requirements validation, and change-impact analysis. Traceability tracks all aspects of requirements: their source, how well they’ve been satisfied, how they were tested, and what build they’re included in. It’s important to be able to quickly identify who wanted a feature in the first place, to get questions answered and to ensure that the requirements are met. Where a feature is implemented is also critical: when requirements change, locating the relevant code quickly can be a real time saver. That also makes broken code easier to find and repair. Comprehensive traceability also makes reacting to changing requirements much easier. Traceability makes what could be a very difficult undertaking simple and understandable.

Rocket IT lifecycle management traceability improves software quality, improves understanding of the software, and makes maintaining and updating it much easier. It also assists in tracking those somewhat hard-to-quantify qualities, the effects of software updates on customers and the overall health of the system. IT lifecycle management traceability links business requirements to code, test cases, and and other software artifacts. Traceability enables compliance verification and change-impact analysis. It’s helpful for compliance with regulatory requirements as well as for adherence to organization-specific rules.

Visibility is another critical attribute of effective software management provided by Rocket IT lifecycle management. Visibility is the ability to analyze progress as it relates to goals. Visibility provides insight into timeliness, adherence to budget constraints, and the delivery of applications that conform to business requirements. It’s a warning system that enables adjustments if a project is off course. For good visibility, the relevant information needs to be centralized and readily available, ensuring that information is consistent throughout an organization. Having results, predictions, and statistics available at all times allows instant insight into project health.

Rocket IT lifecycle management gives you the information you need to determine if your processes are improving. IT lifecycle management allows you to choose key performance indicators to analyze.
