Application support and maintenance has traditionally been aligned to application development, especially in the case of bespoke applications to retain knowledge and provide instantaneous reactive support in case of problems.
But we at HCL thought beyond the obvious and developed an altogether new proposition called Integrated Operations Management Services (IOMS) which integrates application support into the run side of business and achieves effectiveness and efficiency in running application support by creating application knowledge clusters and cross training to ensure that operations knowledge is institutionalized and is independent of the people supporting it.
This integrated model of application operations and infrastructure operations addresses the current industry needs like integrated service level, need of ITIL than CMMI, 24x7 real time applications monitoring, which are delivered through a common tooling and process framework.
The key benefits of our Integrated Operations model are:
- Cost-optimization and manpower optimization by integrating infrastructure and application operations
- Achieve operational excellence by measuring response time SLAs for business applications
- Significant improvements in First Call Resolution (FCR) due to an integrated service desk (application & infrastructure support teams integrated with Helpdesk).
Our adherence to the new ITIL V3 framework and diligence to provide support for packaged and bespoke applications along with innate experience in delivering integrated operations for Fortune 500 clients across different verticals are the key enablers in the area of application support and maintenance.
HCL brings in a 24 x 7, 360 degree view into application landscape, deskilling the support requirement from the business analyst layer to an ITIL based incident management and production support layer to deliver uninterrupted services for mission critical applications.
