During a recent conversation with a prospect it happened again: Oracle ODI 12 has now a Life Cycle Management solution. End of story.
Luckily an Oracle employee took part in the discussion and admitted that ODI 12 had now versioning and that indeed versioning is just one part of Life Cycle Management.
I admit and know that you and many others are confused when Life Cycle Management (LCM) or Application Life Cycle Management (ALM) or DEVOPS is brought to the table. Or when vendors like Atlassian with JIRA or HP with HPALM are being seen by customers to offer full ALM capabilities.
When we ask you the question “do you know what LCM or ALM is?” we sometimes get the answer yes and we have it as we have JIRA or HP ALM. Well LCM or ALM is more than issue tracking or testing.
