CATALYST
Application development continues to evolve with processes and methodologies receiving significant attention through Agile practices, while on the tooling side a new generation of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) products are appearing with process and workflow support figuring largely.

ANALYSIS
Introduction
Software application development is one of those subjects that never disappears but is always evolving. Since the last general survey Report published on this subject – Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), published in September 2005 – there has been a lot of activity in the ALM field. With our colleagues, we published an ALM Decision Matrix in 2007 that looked at the vendor ALM suite market, and we now repeat that exercise in this Report with all the leading vendors participating. (The Decision Matrix also replaces what used to be the Market Lifecycle Ratings in Technology Evaluation and Comparison Reports).

The areas that are currently receiving the greatest activity in application development are:
- Agile development and Agile project management.
- ALM.
- Testing and test management.
- Enterprise Web 2.0.
