Parasoft Concerto is an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution from Parasoft.[1] Its five components are: Policy Center (sets expectations), Process Center (governs workflow), Project Center (manages tasks), Test Center (manages quality), and Report Center (monitors compliance).[2] The complete ALM solution gives developers and QA team members a plan for what needs to be developed, as well as the ability to monitor and track how the software is being implemented.[3]

Parasoft Concerto integrates with third-party tools such as HP Quality Center, IBM Rational RequisitePro, Concurrent Versions System, Subversion, and other development infrastructure components.[4] It was introduced in 2009.[5]
