What else can be said about application Standards? Anything that increases the quality, longevity and value of an application is worth upholding as a Standard or Principle against which it can be measured. Documentation is perhaps a Standard that needs to be met for any application, as it promotes understanding and maintainability into the future. An aspect that should be part of an application’s docmentation is a “roadmap” of its life cycle management. I intend spending more time on application lifecycle management (ALM) in the next few blogs.
