Approach global application development and management in a whole new way

Optimize quality and productivity in your application lifecycle.

Application assembly optimization

One-off error-prone processes, inflexible architectures, lack of traceability between requirements, missed deadlines and quality goals - if these sound familiar, then this lack of process maturity can impact productivity within your application environment.

Application assembly optimization is IBM's patented method of process automation for development, enhancements, testing and maintenance of applications. It provides an approach grounded in standardization as a way to cut your organization's costs and risk through a modular approach to global application development and ongoing management and governance.

What makes this approach unique? IBM takes factory floor concepts and applies the same automation principles to geographically distributed IT development. Work packets automate your development and maintenance workflow while continually capturing complete, consistent and reusable instructions for successfully delivering faster, higher quality application development and management.

IBM uses worldwide resources, processes, tools and methodologies to provide an enhanced delivery model to help you accelerate development cycles and deliver new services faster, while significantly increasing IT staff productivity and application quality.
