If you work for a big company, you know all the big ALM tools. Fortunately, the experience fills out a résumé nicely. Unfortunately, you have to deal with all of them at the same time. I've seen it happen for any number of reasons: outsourcing, acquisitions, restructuring. Whatever the history, the variety of tools can cause communication silos. According to Melvin Conway, those silos doom the software you produce to be siloed. If you thought the only alternative was a lot of custom development using a hodge-podge of languages and protocols, then you may have missed a new generation of middleware designed specifically for ALM integration.
