We can help you maintain the right performance of the applications critical to your enterprise. With thorough monitoring activities, our team proactively diagnoses and fixes evolving slowdowns and failures before they get detected by end users.
We resolve occurring issues in your critical applications related to specific misbehaviors, slow request handling, runtime errors, component unavailability and poor data quality.
We manage requests for minor and more substantial app changes, as well as assist with releases of updated application versions.
We help to ensure you applications stay current with changing business needs and goals. Our consultants conduct a detailed review of your applications and relevant business processes to modify applications (introducing automation and integrations, porting to new techs and platforms, restructuring solution) according to updated business policies, data, and workflows.
Change management and training services
To provide a smooth switch to upgraded systems, we deliver a comprehensive change management plan (including full test coverage, risk analysis and after-launch review), review and training services. We closely work with your IT team to help them to prepare for the management of updated applications. Also, providing step-by-step guides, onsite training and workshops, we ensure that your end users feel confident with new system versions or functional extensions and know how to use them in a productive and efficient way.
Due to our business growth, we decided to outsource the continuous development, support and maintenance of our proprietary internal systems. After thorough due diligence and planning, we engaged ScienceSoft as our development partner. ScienceSoft coordinated knowledge transfer, discovery of our internal systems, then transitioned into supporting those systems and taking on projects to evolve their functionality.
