This is the new book in the “HP ALM Best Practices” series from HP Software.
The HP ALM suite successfully serves various organizations in their quest to deliver quality software that drives the business.
One of the characteristics that should be addressed when supporting application life cycle, is the ability to keep multiple versions of the main entities participating in SDLC. Since many industries are heavily regulated and must pass a variety of compliance-based tests such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA, every step in the process must be audited and presented to the authorities. Even if your project is not regulated, it is important to keep previous versions for mission-critical assets. Enabling the version control feature of HP ALM helps achieve this goal.
Coupled with baselining, the ability to take a snapshot of current project activities at important milestones, versioning enables the tracking of mission critical business projects, the ability to compare saved entities with their current state, the retrieval of older versions, and more.
