Software Change Management for Application Development

Your developers often use many disparate applications that make it difficult for you, as a development manager, to see the big picture and manage changes and releases. Add to this the fact that your developers need to have complete knowledge of complex directory and/or library structures to find, distribute, or promote code and you have a big challenge. Your developers should spend their time coding—not finding, routing, and tracking everything they do. You want to know what state the applications are in at any given point, track them when they're changed or released, and report on them. How do you do this when everyone is up to something different?

Our software lets your development teams continue to go about their business without impacting the way they develop software. Meanwhile, we let managers and other staff members view changes based on applications and tasks or other familiar structures rather than the storage structure of the development files. Our change and release management solutions allow you to automatically see, capture, track, and report on changes in the software development lifecycle, anywhere, at any time.

Software change management applications

Change request management

Rocket Aldon's change request management solutions automatically verify, route for approval, and archive change request requirements and development projects. With Rocket Aldon solutions, you can define the process of tracking all bugs and change requests. We give you a single, instantly accessible place from which you can give requestors and approvers up-to-the-minute status updates. You can also evaluate all software change requests, so you can determine if you have the right authorization, or not. This ensures that you have the oversight needed for internal and external compliance programs. You can link change request management to the development process and get visibility throughout the entire application lifecycle. In addition, our customers tell us that when they use our products, they cut down their change-related failure incidents and problems, which mean both day-to-day operations and service quality can improve dramatically.

Workflow & change management

Rocket Aldon solutions automate and accelerate the workflow and change management process in the manner that makes sense for your unique business requirements. In fact, if desired, you can create workflows or custom escalation rules, via a wizard so you can deal with the most complex escalation, notification, and approval processes. Our solutions automatically verify, approve, and archive change requests, requirements, and development projects so you don't have to. This means that you can get "any-time" updates. And since our software can see all changes and workflow along the services and development lifecycles, you have the visibility, enforceability, and traceability necessary for internal and external compliance.

Distribution & release management

Rocket Aldon's automated deployment solutions ensure that the appropriate files are automatically deployed to the correct locations throughout the software development process, even in the most highly distributed environments. Through one screen, you can easily track and manage the whole process. Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Manager deploys all components to appropriate target locations at every stage, and gathers, packages, distributes, and installs application components to all target platforms on a secure, authorized basis.
