ASG-Life Cycle Manager

 

Provides Organizations With Accurate Change Control in Multiple Software or Document Configurations

The ASG-Life Cycle Manager (LCM) Total Solution provides an intuitive environment for controlling changes throughout the software life cycle. Only authorized changes are incorporated into sanctioned baselines, releases, or production environments.

The ASG-LCM Total Solution Package is a pre-defined, packaged solution which can be implemented quickly and simply. It introduces a role-based security model of Developer, Approver and Deployment and enforces separation of duties of these roles. It comprises all the necessary structures, configurations, and processes to manage code into production environments, complete with built-in approvals and email notifications. With ASG-LCM, the developer drives the development process. The developer will export items from production, make changes, create the package, and import the changed code. When the package is complete, the developer requests the movement of the package into the next stage of the life cycle. After approvals and deployment, the developer receives notifications from ASG-LCM when the package updates the next-stage libraries, and again when the package is updated into PROD and the production libraries are updated.

Differentiators

The ASG-LCM Total Solution combines the most critical life cycle management functions into a single, integrated solution. These functions are:
  • Change Management

    Tracks all changes and history, identifying who, when, and why changes were made.

  • Application Management

    Provides a repository for applications undergoing changes.

  • Package Management

    Streamlines the definition of change packages, allowing users to deploy the package as a single unit.

  • Dependency Management

    Automatically detects, tracks, and reports dependencies between components.

Benefits

The ASG-LCM Solution combines the functionality needed to manage the application development life cycle at a reasonable cost.
  • Automatic Detection of Dependencies

    Automatically identified dependencies, ensuring the change package is complete

  • Impact and Change Analysis

    Performs what-if analysis of a change before an actual build

  • Manages Changes to Application Data

    Performs auditing and versioning of all managed components
