Application Lifecycle Management
Are you tired of:
- Projects consistently costing more than budgeted?
- Missing requirements or setting poor client expectations?
- Defects causing issues with production applications?
- Unexpected delays in software development projects?
- Loss of Faith in your IT organization?
- Spending more time supporting your application and not enhancements?
With more and more demand from business users for technology, efficiency, effectiveness, and cost savings are at the forefront of all IT decision makers' minds. At CTS, we believe that having the right tools to support your process can improve team efficiency and effectiveness and reduce IT costs. Once effective tools are in place to govern the software development lifecycle, efforts can then focus on the improvement of specific areas, such as enforcing coding best practices, automating configuration management, and enabling test impact analysis.

We apply our Sentinel and Guardian methodologies, relentless attention to quality, and years of experience to help our customers deliver enterprise quality software.
