Project, Application & Infrastructure Portfolio Management for IT Organizations requires integration between your PMO, Development and Operations groups, with one view of the project lifecycle. PPM Litecycle provides PPM and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) in an integrated, non-complicated, non-bureaucratic process.

To remove the walls between business stakeholders, development teams, project managers, and the PMO, PPM Litecycle broadens the capabilities of a PPM system to include ALM elements, while at the same time lightens the burden of deep data entry such as excessively-detailed task and time tracking.

The Business/IT  need core features that focus on planning, tracking, and reporting while providing easier access to critical metadata needed to achieve their goals.  PPM Litecycle provides the glue between operational and strategic systems through an integrated/ integrating platform to achieve the Business Project Objectives. 

PPM Litecycle is a light end-to-end solution for project, application and infrastructure management; incorporating key aspects of both PPM and ALM applications.  Features are rich, but not burdensome for the business to utilize. Governance processes are built-in.  Built on open-source technology, with visual development and easily customizable workflow.
