The IT team needed a better way to manage source modifications and secure code without slowing down its development. As General Cable expanded its customer base, the development team recognized the need to secure its IP and source code but without slowing down the application staff’s productivity. According to George Almeida, a member of General Cable's IBM i technical support team, the development group wanted to meet several key objectives in its search for the right Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution. Flexibility was a critical factor.


  • Automated and accelerated change management processes while providing structure
  • Increased developer productivity


  • Software Change Management

[Rocket ALM products] made a big difference in our environment...the overall long-term impact has been a very positive one. And through it all, the technical support team has been nothing short of superb.
