Decisive factors for business success are efficiency and flexibility in the IT application portfolio. On this matter, the role of Application Management is increasingly becoming an essential service with great potential for particularly complex business realities.
Having gained several years of experience in the ICT market, alongside its clients, Engineering intervenes in this field by clearly identifying the needs and generally highlighting the limits of a technologically inefficient architecture: in particular, an over-abundance of applications that have grown in layers over the years, based on subsequent projects, without an overall design and often not based on standard market products but customized ones.
This scenario entails high maintenance costs that consume investment budgets, tight schedules for development and project delivery, to the detriment of their quality, lack of governance, difficulty in controlling sub-contractors and maintaining skills.
With this type of clients, the challenge is to prove the recognizable value of IT in business and work to strategically reposition it within the company. This goal presumes the capacity to manage the development process and software in an advanced, industrialized manner, at the same time reducing costs and complexity of the application environment by rationalization, making the IT infrastructure so much more efficient, in the broadest sense. A key factor may be the adoption of new delivery models that are flexible and modular, open to innovation, and the emergence of new contract forms and pricing.
