ALM suite helps with complete product lifecycle management which includes program and portfolio management, requirements management, test case, bugs management, collaboration-communication. ALM suite should have the following features:1) Requirements import-export- As requirements will be coming from various stakeholders spread across departments2) Integration - Integration is the key feature as it will help with easily moving data spread across different tools into one suite. This is especially required when you want to move existing data into the ALM suite3) Inbuilt communication functionality - Again it helps in having all communication data at one place thus helps in eliminating data spillage.
