Collaborative Lifecycle Management organizes the artifacts involved in software and systems delivery. It integrates tasks across the lifecycle so team members can collaborate more effectively, and it creates traceability among the artifacts for quick retrieval. In this session you will learn how Collaborative Lifecycle Management improves collaboration across teams and geographies by providing consistent access to team process, workflow and artifacts. It helps meet compliance requirements through asset traceability and approval workflows. Additionally Collaborative Lifecycle Management provides a foundation for continuous capability improvement through flexible, rules-based process enforcement, real-time reporting and integrated best practices.
