Application Management

Every IT organization is undergoing tremendous change with respect to IT strategy and management. For example, application architectures have migrated from mainframe/host-based solutions, to client-server, to thin client, to browser-based solutions. The core of the enterprise business environment lies in applications like ERP, CRM and SCM to name a few, and legacy applications. Though business functionality and focus vary, each enterprise application needs to contribute to net positive ROI while helping the IT organization meet business objectives.


At AOT, we understand the significant difference between the two key phases of application lifecycle in an enterprise. While the development phase includes application development and deployment, the post deployment phase actually determines the success of your application, particularly from a business acceptance point-of-view. Hence maintenance and support services for application assume critical importance. Hence, we have created a Support Management Services Framework that focuses on application maintenance and support.
