When investing in automated, application lifecycle management software, companies want a quick ROI. Having an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use interface with guided navigation helps technical staff become productive immediately. Add to that the ability to enable lifecycle automation for web and mobile to back end IBM i and Windows servers, and the software solution becomes relevant and necessary. Quick time-to-market for the application stack has become essential to most businesses.
CM First’s CM MatchPoint ALM makes it quick and easy to integrate development environments under Subversion control for web and mobile applications that span multiple tiers. Also available is CA Plex Java and C# support, again extending the capabilities of the solution beyond RPG and C++. CM MatchPoint integrates easily with TopEase®, used by some for BPM and requirements management.
CM First has just delivered the V5.2 release of CM MatchPoint ALM with a revamped user interface. Early reports on it are favorable.
“Our customers are impressed by the complete redesign of the user interface,” says Christoph Heinrich, CEO of CM First Group. “The navigation and the processes are intuitive and easy to learn. This is important because there are many types of users that can benefit from working with CM MatchPoint ALM, including software developers, requirements engineers, testers and project managers. We want to make it easy to use our solution.”
CM First is also introducing CM MatchPoint Essentials, which is a free, entry-level version of CM MatchPoint. It is easy to install and set up, and can be used by two users at no charge. “This is a great opportunity to discover the power of CM MatchPoint and get immediate value from it. In addition, we offer different support options while you are using this free license,” Heinrich notes.
For those not familiar with CM MatchPoint ALM, this product is a cross-platform, application lifecycle management solution that provides end-to-end governance of software change processes. Beat the audit ‘blues’ with a product that makes compliance easy to manage. For IBM i customers, CM MatchPoint integrates change management across IBM Power Systems (IBM i/p and Linux) and Windows platforms. Ideal for those working in the Agile environment, CM MatchPoint facilitates frequent and automated deployments which help companies achieve short delivery cycles. Worksoft Certify can be added for automation of functional regression tests.
