What is AALM?
You can see Azure Application Lifecycle Management (AALM) as an “umbrella” that covers multiple disciplines of your organization, like development, management, IT, and more.
AALM consists of multiple phases that cover an aspect of your application management. Good management always starts with planning. After a solid plan, you can begin developing, testing, and deploying. But it doesn’t stop there; you need to maintain and check that what has been built is still working well for you and your customers. And since nothing is static, you continuously need to adapt and improve. With these steps, you are continuously improving your application. That’s when the cycle starts again: by redefining your current situation and from that point creating a new plan for further improvement.
Adopting AALM means working smart with multiple people and/or teams. It is a continuous process in which frequent updates and releases are necessary to grow and improve. With a good integration of these phases, you enable your organization to collaborate more effectively.
