Nintendo's got a new backend

Gamasutra reports that Nintendo HQ has adopted a new software management solution in Aldon Lifecycle Manager. What this new program allows the bigwigs over in Washington to do is maintain a high level of awareness throughout different development projects (such as all upcoming Revolution titles) as they go through their lifecycles. Now, apparently, it won't be the impossibly difficult task of walking over to the development area and asking the Project Lead where they're at currently. It's now only a mouse click away. Let's hope it helps those at Nintendo who've been having problems with their TPS reports, also.
