Application maintenance and support services

Many of the past organizations have implemented specialized packaging solutions or applications developed, and a hybrid mixture of both types, without the due diligence and planning needed for how they will maintain and improve cross-time applications. This trend, although in reduced intensity, leads forward to the present. As a result, the maintenance of applications spread across various platforms from inheritance to the client server system to multi-tier-based architecture or newer browsers continue to be key, and often ignored, challenging many global companies.

Application management services (AMS) provide ongoing functional and technical support for company application maintenance needs. The expertise of service providers in this field is determined by how well, and how consistently, it succeeded in stabilizing, optimizing, and expanding client applications so that its function continues to meet the needs of clients growing and changing.

The AMS shipping team must combine excellent customer service skills, SLA-based service management expertise, and critical business domains and functional knowledge along with relevant technology platforms and skills.

* Corrective requirements: When certain functional or technical disorders are identified in an application, or an application ecosystem, the AMS provider team needs to quickly narrow and isolate the problem and correct the same thing.

* Adaptive requirements: OS platform, or underlying databases, or hardware, or other IT systems where application sub-system depends on changes, there is a need to modify certain aspects of the dependent application.

2. AMS for application improvement – this is a service provided on demand with the aim of improving application functionality and performance. In turn, the service request can originate because one of two causes:

* Repair Needs: Based on user feedback, over time, certain increasing areas can be identified for applications, or application ecosystems. The AMS provider team needs to provide services to build the features / functions needed into the application.

* Precautionary requirements: Even without identifying the active increase area of ​​the user community, future-minded system analysts need to identify mechanisms to ensure better performance, easier maintenance and higher reliability of critical applications.

AMS providers need to collaborate in the initiative, and apply final recommendations for the same thing.
