On March 19, 2016 HPE has posted two new videos on the YouTube channel of HPE Software about the upcoming beta phase of the product “Next Generation ALM”.
This product is a fully web based ALM solution that targets the enterprise environment. According to HPE it will scale to thousands of users supporting the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).
It is a completely new developed product that addresses the bimodal challenges in IT departments. Bimodal IT as defined by Gartner “is the practice of managing two separate, coherent modes of IT delivery, one focused on stability and the other on agility. Mode 1 is traditional and sequential, emphasizing safety and accuracy. Mode 2 is exploratory and nonlinear, emphasizing agility and speed.” HPE currently addresses mode 1 with the existing HPE ALM solution. The “Next Gen ALM” targets mode 2.
On March 22 HPE provided a webinar to the Vivit community with the title: HPE ALM Beta
Within that seminar Vandan Nayak Product Manager from HPE announced the start of public beta for March 24, 2016.
The Website for registration is: https://saas.hpe.com/signup/try/alm-beta
The on premise availability for the public beta is scheduled for April 4, 2016.
HPE starts an interesting journey with the “Next Gen ALM” product approach. Watch out for more insights about HPE’s move towards the agile future at agileQC.net in the upcoming weeks.
