Application maintenance: keeping up to stay ahead
Application maintenance is the constant updating, modifying and re-assessing of software applications to correct faults or improve performance.
Nowadays, more and more vendors of business applications pick offering the latest fad over offering top-notch support – with devastating consequences. Because these applications are closely connected to the people and machines you work with, a change in either of these requires that the others evolves as well. In other words: support is essential to ensure that you always get the most out of your IT solutions.
For many companies, the quick pace at which software companies release new versions is a source of constant stress: will everything still work as intended? How will this impact my daily operations? The goal of good application maintenance is to avoid surprises while fostering maximum convenience at the same time.
