Kovair Announces the ALM Studio for Applications Development

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) -  Kovair today announced that it has brought all the key point applications for an ALM-SDLC (http://www.kovair.com/alm.aspx) implementation in a single package under a single data repository called the ALM Studio. These include Requirements Management, Test Management, Defect/Issue Management, Release Management, Risk Management and Project Management. This is a fully configured Applications Suite with best practices work flows for Requirements review and approval, test planning, development test execution and defects resolution. Additionally, Kovair's flexible and configurable work flow and the configurable application entities allow the users to configure it for their specific needs irrespective of the development methodology they are following whether it is the traditional Waterfall, Iterative or Agile.

With Kovair's proven Omnibus Bidirectional Integration Middleware (http://www.kovair.com/omnibus.aspx), the ALM Studio has been integrated for the popular development IDEs like Eclipse, Microsoft Visual Studio and the Rational Application Developer allowing developers to continue to work in their familiar environments and yet have complete access to all the artifacts for Requirements, Test Cases and Defects from the ALM Studio. With Kovair's further integrations with its Omnibus for Configuration Management tools like Subversion, Clearcase, Perforce and TFS, developers can trace their source code to requirements and defects providing end to end traceability. For testing, the testers can build test scripts in tools like the HP Quick Test Pro (QTP), the Rational Functional Tester (RFT) and execute them automatically from the Test Lab in the Kovair ALM Studio. Any other test automation tools can also be integrated with the Kovair Test Lab through the Omnibus.

For Project Management; task management, time management, resource analysis and management, what if analysis, Gant charts and Dashboard capabilities are all built into the ALM Studio. The ALM Studio comes with multiple types of integrated reporting and dashboards for key project metrics -- Requirements Coverage, Release Readiness, Quality Metrics, Defect Trends and the Project Health Report.

"We have created an end to end ALM-SDLC Solution with all the key capabilities within Kovair and further enhanced the ALM Studio with integrations with other best of breed tools," commented Atanu Majumdar, VP of Engineering for Kovair. 

"We are pleased to offer this new and well integrated solution to the market that will result in increased productivity, improved quality, better process implementation, high confidence change management and considerably enhanced management visibility and decision making capability for any enterprise," said Bipin Shah, CEO and Chairman of Kovair.

The ALM Studio will be offered for On Premise installations or Software as a Service -- SaaS.
