Get more from your application investments
Application management isn't something you can check off a list. It's a daily grind of continual maintenance work that drains the time and patience of your internal IT staff.
When your IT staff are engaged in the on-going tasks involved with keeping your applications running and accessible to employees and customers, you may find - as have many other organisations - that there aren't enough resources available to take full advantage of your applications' capabilities. You may worry about losing the return on your application investments, and therefore seek new ways to enhance your control.
And all the time, your application environment is growing in size and complexity, which only adds to the burdens being shouldered by your IT staff. With mixed application platforms becoming the norm, the job of administering countless modules, databases and interdependencies is an ever-growing challenge in the face of ever-shrinking budgets.
