Al Noor Hospital is a private healthcare group with several branches in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. It employs experienced healthcare professionals and has state-of-the-art facilities to offer the best healthcare in the region. Since its inception in 1985, Al Noor Hospital has seen considerable growth and attained several quality certifications. Realizing the importance of IT in supporting the group's growth, the IT department underwent a massive restructuring, starting off with just 2 developers.

Early 2011, the IT department decided to implement Microsoft's Application Lifecycle Management in order to get a grip on their source code and their activities. The first phase of the implementation ran smoothly and was completed by the end of 2011. Following that initial phase, the team went on to develop applications based on a service-oriented architecture, including message-based programmes. Implementing ALM has already resulted in a 20-30 % reduction in development resources. Significant efficiency gains from automated testing have also been reported.
