codeBeamer ALM Recognized in Ovum White Paper on Agile+DevOps in Safety-Critical Development

Achieving Safety-Critical Development Maturity with Agile/DevOps ALM

Intland Software announces the recognition of its codeBeamer Application Lifecycle Management software platform in Ovum’s latest white paper. In the report, the London-based independent analyst firm notes codeBeamer ALM as an outstanding tool to support Agile and DevOps maturity in regulated product development. Based on a case study with leading German carmaker BMW, this new white paper on integrating ALM with Agile and DevOps practices finds that Intland Software’s codeBeamer aptly supports compliance in a scaled lean Agile context.

Titled Achieving Safety-Critical Development Maturity with Agile/DevOps ALM, the study examines the use of DevOps and Agile scaling frameworks (SAFe®, LeSS) in regulated development. With an example from auto manufacturer BMW, it also analyzes the role of ALM in satisfying the needs of safety-critical development.

“Tools can help in bringing transparency into bottlenecks and issues, in reducing feedback cycles, and in having the right information to hand when troubleshooting. The role of ALM is paramount in this respect. […] BMW’s choice of Intland codeBeamer for its ALM solution was based on its ability to support development for safety-critical products, including agile practices and end-to-end work item traceability.”

Claiming that Agile/DevOps is the next step in the evolution of software development, the report states that codeBeamer is a next-generation ALM tool that can support the accelerated delivery of quality software at scale and with low risks. The paper recognizes the benefits of Agile scaling frameworks such as LeSS and SAFe® used in conjunction with ALM to satisfy the compliance, regulatory, safety, and security requirements of safety-critical development.

“As evidenced by our growing user base in the automotive industry as well as among medical and avionics developers, codeBeamer represents a new generation of Application Lifecycle Management that enables the adoption of Agile and DevOps practices in these regulated industries. The experiences of our automotive customer quoted in the study underline that codeBeamer brings maturity to the integration of ALM and Agile/DevOps. We hope that Ovum’s recognition of our tool will allow us to help more companies create high-quality software in safety-critical environments.”
