Application Maintenance Management

Whether it’s planned, routine, or emergency-related, the constant change involved in application maintenance must be managed in order to minimize possible downtime and maximize maintenance efforts without overrunning the maintenance budget.

Application Maintenance Management has four steps:

  1. Manage the Application Portfolio.
  2. Assess Application Maintenance Maturity.
  3. Assess Application Change Management Maturity.
  4. Evaluate Application Maintenance Process Performance.

When you have completed these steps, you will have a solid understanding of what applications are in place in the enterprise, the relative health of your applications maintenance processes, and guidelines for improvement.
