Good access to business applications is crucial to the daily operations of many businesses. The challenges this presents for the IT organisation include having sufficient expertise, the necessary preparedness, and meeting the changing needs and priorities of the business.
A number of businesses find that applications are slow and response times are long. Technical faults make applications unavailable without the user receiving any information about this.
Inadequate preparedness and poor procedures result in uncertain projections in terms of troubleshooting and restoring of availability. The result is dissatisfied users and resistance against using applications and new technology.
Business-related requirements change, and the IT organisation has to be adapted and often faces difficulties in terms of obtaining the necessary resources and expertise. Keeping knowledge up to date is challenging, and the most capable employees disappear once the projects are completed.
Outsourcing of application management has evolved into more than just a cost-cutting exercise. Businesses have come to understand that expertise, advanced methodology and sophisticated technologies can give major benefits.
