eSystems’ journey to ALM
eSystems is a cutting-edge Tier 1 supplier to the electric mobility industry. Part of the bebro group’s network that operates in the high-tech innovation and manufacturing sector, eSystems develops charging solutions, Vehicle-to-Grid technology, and ECUs for electric vehicles.
The company’s Head of Software Development, Alexander Bourgett, participated in the creation of this case study. His inputs provide insights into how a fast-moving automotive innovator modernized its toolchain using integrated Application Lifecycle Management, and the benefits they were able to realize through this journey.
Operating at the intersection of the automotive and the energy sectors, the company has complex software project management and regulatory compliance needs. Prior to making the switch to integrated ALM eSystems, like so many other companies, was relying on MS Excel sheets and open-source issue tracking tools to manage requirements and to oversee development.
Having understood the mounting complexity of product innovation, Mr Bourgett grasped that using general tools would result in a higher risk level, complicated audits, and potentially lower quality products. The need to make the transition to integrated Application Lifecycle Management was clear.
Selecting an ALM tool
In 2016, eSystems began researching the market for an ALM tool to help the company overcome the most pressing problems of a substandard toolchain that was based on a combination of MS Office and open-source tools: limited traceability, effort-intensive tool maintenance, poor project overview & management, QA difficulties, and unsatisfactory data visibility.
After a meticulous evaluation process, codeBeamer ALM was selected as the Application Lifecycle Management platform to be implemented at eSystems. The company’s development team uses the tool to run fully controlled and compliant processes at all times, reducing their audit preparation activities to about 1 day. codeBeamer ALM saves eSystems a great deal of effort, time, and costs through:
- End-to-end traceability across the lifecycle
- A full and better replacement of IBM® Rational® DOORS®
- Project overview via dashboards and widgets, automated reporting
- Complete change history
- Advanced repository management
- Extendability & integrability (REST and Swagger API)
- Automation and reuse for maximum efficiency
Mr Bourgett’s summary of eSystems’ experience using codeBeamer ALM speaks for itself:
"It’s a lot better than any other system I know". – Alexander Bourgett, Head of Software Development, eSystems
