My new English book is about Agile ALM. What is Agile Application Lifecycle Management? ALM is the intelligent composition of build-, configuration-, change-, test-, quality-, requirements-, integration- and release management. It is a comprehensive approach spanning development phases and project roles, taking care of all artifact types.

Agile ALM
- Is the marriage of business management to software engineering
- Targets processes and tools working together seamlessly, without silos (silos are for farmers!)
- Spans software development life-cycle phases, project roles and artifact types
- Enriches ALM with Agile strategies
- Is based on Software Configuration Management and version control
- Is based on a set of lightweight tools, enabling a team to collaborate efficiently

This book has three main purposes. What is Agile ALM and how can Application Lifecycle Management be rolled out using Agile strategies and best of breed tools? Secondly, what isolated tesserae (toolboxes) can be created for these de facto standard tools for use in advanced, real world use cases? Thirdly, how can we choose the right tools, use them right, and integrate them while applying Agile strategies? These questions are the focus of this book. The book delivers all information you need to implement ALM in an Agile environment, in a single location. This book will enable you to understand and put into practice entire tool chains for automating the builds, tests, and continuous integration of your applications. This book helps you deliver quality applications without wasting time on repetitive tasks, or spending time hunting for a toolbox of strategies and tools.

My book is split into the following chapters:

Part 1 Introducing Agile and ALM
1 Moving to Agile ALM
2 ALM and Agile strategies

Part 2 Functional ALM
3 Implementing Scrum
4 Task-Based Development

Part 3 Integration Management and Releasing
5 Dependency management and releasing
6 Productive development environment
7 Advanced Continuous Integration: Tooling and Recipes

Part 4 Outside-in development and barrier-free development/testing
8 Collaborative development and barrier-free development/testing

I have already completed and submitted the final manuscript end of March. At the moment, Manning is inspecting the manuscript and collects issues they want me to adjust, finally.

Please let me say thank you here: I very appreciate the contributing, reviewing and editing work of about 20 leading experts on the market. Thank you, that you helped me. Much more about that later, too.

There is much more to say of course about this book, and I will do that from now on. I will start now throwing updates about the book (content) itself and the further publishing process, on my communication channels including my blog and Twitter, in short intervals. Please stay in touch!
