Application lifecycle management

Effectively manage all software development activities

Government agencies have a growing challenge to achieve their missions through the rapid delivery of digital services. Use of agile and DevOps methodologies are increasing the speed of application development and project success rates, but often face challenges when delivering at scale.

To deliver at scale and support mission objectives, agencies need an end-to-end application lifecycle management (ALM) platform for managing all of the activities required to develop software components, including new applications and application programming interfaces (APIs).

Adoption of ALM practices enables traceability from application requirement to release, and actionable metrics regarding application development efforts. An effective ALM process within government organizations serves as the operational foundation for digital transformation, service enablement and cost savings through application portfolio management and planning.

Federal government projects using agile development sometimes are also required contractually to use earned value management (EVM). CGI has been at the forefront of combining EVM methodology with agile development methodology. Learn more about CGI’s Agile EVM approach.

Enabled by ALM tools such as CGI AgileIQ Suite, government agencies can gain real-time collaboration between all stakeholders, unparalleled transparency into process and delivery, and reduced cost and time to market for application releases.

CGI's comprehensive ALM products and services include:

  • CGI AgileIQ Suite
  • Assessment of existing government ALM practices and tools to develop roadmaps to improve automation and enable continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD)
  • Metric-driven approach to application development activities, more effectively directing resources to development efforts
