In November 2012, we updated the Application Lifecycle Management competency to support the launch of Visual Studio 2012. Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is a set of processes, practices and tools used to manage the lifecycle of an application from design to deployment and support. ALM is becoming essential for organizations whose applications need to continually evolve to cost-effectively adapt to market needs.
