Maximize application value
Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) Managed Application Cloud Services bring together the speed, scalability and cost-efficiency of the cloud with our infrastructure and application management expertise to help you get more value from your application investments.
Enterprise applications should simplify, accelerate and differentiate your business, but the costly and complex foundations they run on can keep them from doing so, preventing them from delivering their full potential to the business.
In response, many organizations are moving their applications off the rigid, change-resistant legacy platforms they've had for years. By running their mission-critical applications on more agile, change-ready cloud infrastructures—rightsized for each application – they can increase performance and availability, respond to emerging opportunities faster, and speed the roll out of new capabilities to the enterprise.
However, moving to the cloud has its challenges. Applications are rarely moved all at once to the cloud; large, monolithic systems such as Oracle and SAP are often migrated module by module. This results in a complex, hybrid environment containing multiple platforms, which makes application management difficult and time-consuming. Agility, scalability, and cost control are the goal, but they must be achieved with appropriate security, recoverability, and governance.
Why Sungard AS?
With over 35 years of experience creating highly responsive and resilient environments for our customers—and expertise managing hybrid IT environments—we can streamline cloud adoption and application management to help you run and recover your most critical applications and workloads.
And, our proven proficiency in leveraging technology, integration and application and cloud partners enables us to support a complete solution for you.
To accelerate the movement of your applications to the cloud, take advantage of our cloud consulting services to start strategizing, designing and migrating your applications and data to the cloud.
You rely on your applications to deliver the business outcomes you need. And your applications rely on having the right infrastructure to help them deliver their full value. That's why it's so important to align your infrastructure choice with the specific needs of each application and workload.
Sungard AS can help you gain a deeper understanding of your application requirements from the start—including performance, availability and security needs, as well as compliance, data protection and recovery.
Then, we can recommend the most appropriate infrastructure to meet those application needs, optimizing their value to your organization. Once deployed, our application management experts can ensure your software continues to deliver results, freeing you to focus on other initiatives.
