CM MatchPoint ALM

Lifecycle Management and Automated Deployment

While mid-range servers are running mission critical applications, many development teams are either using homegrown change control solutions, or are paying substantial maintenance fees to vendors that are supporting the IBM i. Often these same products are difficult to use and cannot support a shift to more agile development, and automated deployment to multiple platforms. CM MatchPoint is a cross-platform Application Lifecycle Management solution that provides end-to-end governance of software change processes.
