Application lifecycle management supplier MKS Inc. yesterday released a new version of its flagship ALM platform adding test-management capabilities to the suite.

The company’s new MKS Integrity 2009 includes new analytics capabilities and provides real-time views of testing processes, allowing developers to make better decisions about any given process, company officials said.

“Testers can readily see in real-time their testing deficit as the developer is actually doing real-time work,” said John Cull, VP of global marketing and strategic alliances at Waterloo-based MKS in an interview.

By incorporating requirements management with testing, MKS’ ALM platform will offer a more complete lifecycle management offering. MKS is in a crowded field of ALM vendors that include some heavyweights such as Microsoft, IBM, and Micro Focus, which recently acquired Borland’s ALM business.
