Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Manager (IBM i Edition)

Deliver more IT projects, on time and with less risk

Rocket® Aldon® Lifecycle Manager (IBM i Edition) lets you deploy your applications into complex, multiplatform production environments faster, with fewer software defects and deployment glitches, and with compliance. It automates the entire software development and delivery process–from requests to deployment.

Rocket Application Lifecycle Management

Automate software release management and deployment

Through automation, Aldon Lifecycle Manager (ALM) eliminates manual effort, reduces costs, ensures application integrity, delivers efficiencies, and speeds up delivery times. Simply select the tasks or objects you want promoted, and Lifecycle Manager automatically moves the source to the next stage, creates the objects, creates the dependent objects, deploys the objects if necessary, performs the file conversions, and logs the activities. Release management is repeatable, documentable, and traceable. Compliance is built in and policies are automatically reinforced.
