Application Lifecycle Manager
"Software and release management require a high degree of coordination, agreement, testing and the administration of a complex data stock!"
Simplify the management of your application landscape and make it a high quality routine.
Software requests from users trigger a complex software provisioning process - from initialization, development, testing and quality assurance to implementation and finally application by the user. Every software or operating system update requires new tests, approvals, if necessary new software packaging or even new purchases and subsequent licensing.
Silver Monkey Application Lifecycle Manager offers you the possibility to carry out the software lifecycle in your company in a standardised, clear and transparent way. We help you with our tool in all phases of software packaging, provisioning and management of your software inventory, management of release changes and update cycles up to decommissioning of the software.
Our web application is clear, easy to understand and accessible from anywhere at any time. Messages triggered from the system inform all process participants about the respective process step and any necessary tasks - such as testing, release, approval and others. We also provide you with reporting that gives you full control and overview of the status of your software lifecycle at all times.
Silver Monkey Application Lifecycle Management prepares you for the ever-shorter update cycles of manufacturers and creates the basis for an Evergreen service in your company.
All necessary technical procedures for mapping the application life cycle can be automated via our specially developed interface to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and other standard interfaces to third-party systems.
An adaptation to your environment and your company CI is easily possible.
