Application Management

application-managementWelcome to Excipio’s assessment strategy for application management (depicted in the diagram below). Regardless of the platform or application environment, our analysis provides the critical information necessary to make educated business decisions in your application management environment.

Background. Application management is key to any organization, as proactive planning and execution will minimize costly expenditures and unplanned outages. Organizations need an effective Application Lifecycle Management program, which is comprised of three critical capabilities, governance, development, and operations. Each of these capabilities is required to ensure application availability, reliability, functionality, and security. In many organizations, the staff is focused on daily operations and does not have the time and resources to consistently review the application portfolio, much less new industry offerings and alternative solutions.

The overall goal is to provide a third party review with attention to detail, accuracy and completeness. Excipio is vendor neutral, meaning we do not sell specific solutions, technology, support systems or related services, and thus can be completely objective in our analysis and recommendations.
