ThoughtWorks Studios Sees Accelerated Adoption of Its Adaptive ALM Solution for Agile Software Development

Enterprise customers are benefiting by integrating project/program management, test and release management into a unified solution for large-scale Agile development

LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- ThoughtWorks Studios, (www.thoughtworks-studios.com) a global leader in Agile ALM tools and training, today announced the continued adoption of its Adaptive ALM(TM) solution that helps organizations streamline and automate the entire Agile software development lifecycle. During the last quarter of 2009, the company closed several enterprise licenses for Adaptive ALM, an integrated solution comprised of Mingle® (project management), Twist® (test automation) and Cruise® (release management) products. These companies included, The Trainline (www.thetrainline.com) and Trader Media Group (www.autotrader.co.uk).

"Organizations looking to extend Agile practices deeper into the software development process realize that mastering project management is only one step in building out a truly Agile enterprise," explained Cyndi Mitchell, managing director for ThoughtWorks Studios. "With Adaptive ALM, a growing number of customers are moving to integrate core engineering practices to create a richer and more complete Agile program that drives productivity and improves software quality."

ThoughtWorks Studios is the products division of the industry leading Agile consultancy ThoughtWorks®. It developed Adaptive ALM to address the shortcomings of traditional ALM solutions that lack the functionality to effectively manage the hybrid nature of Agile practices. In addition, incumbent stand-alone Agile project management tools require extensive third-party tool integrations to make up an Agile ALM platform. ThoughtWorks Studios' Adaptive ALM product suite delivers a fully automated solution that supports all aspects of a software development and delivery lifecycle - from requirements definition and portfolio management to test automation, quality assurance and release management.

Based on deep experience developing some of the most successful and sophisticated Agile projects in the world, all ThoughtWorks Studios' software adapts to unique customer dynamics and allows organizations to determine preferred workflows and processes. This flexible, "work as you like" approach to building out a complete ALM program promotes the use of both new and existing processes and best practices across the enterprise. It provides developers and business team members with a holistic set of tools that work in harmony to deliver real-time collaboration and visibility. It also removes operational silos and, through cross-functional automation, effectively meets strategic business objectives regardless of changing parameters.
