Application lifecycle management is the process of managing an app’s development, from design to final release, and establishing a framework for managing changes.
The typical application lifecycle starts with the design of a new app or feature. The app is planned based on requirements analysis and specifications. After that, the app is implemented as per the specifications and then tested. The new app is staged for final testing before it gets deployed to production.
This cycle repeats for every new app or feature. It’s also used for app maintenance, such as when features are enhanced, or bugs are fixed.
To follow the above approach, we should follow AGILE methodology to get it done. In this process, that start somewhere in the business as an idea, a need, a challenge or a risk and then pass through different development phases such as
- Requirements definition
- Release and maintenance
In this process each of these steps is closely monitored and controlled, followed by proper tracking and documentation of any changes to the application.
Today, it is more likely that developers will use agile model and remain involved with the application after deployment, working with business owners and operations to make incremental changes as needed.
