We strictly follow the ITIL V3 model for standardized processes in the areas of Incident Management, Problem Management, Change Management, Release Management, Capacity Management and Availability Management.
We have deep expertise in rationalizing the portfolio of Applications by plotting the customer’s application landscape against a business process heat map. Our recommendations will help customer organizations consolidate and enhance some applications thereby decommissioning redundant applications. Such recommendations will be seamlessly integrated with an analysis of underlying software and hardware infrastructure that will help arrive at a more streamlined Software License Management.
As part of Application Life Cycle Management, we help our Customers evolve transparent Governance processes that enable
- Applications that have been developed to get transitioned seamlessly into Application and Production Support
