New Application Management and Support

Crimson’s new application management services are for organisations seeking support and guidance in leveraging their investment in new Microsoft technologies, such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM or a .NET based bespoke application.

As a Microsoft Certified partner, Crimson already has the structure, Microsoft certified teams and processes to effectively manage Microsoft applications. Whether you need additional capacity or simply see managing IT applications as outside your organisation’s core competence, Crimson can ensure user support for your application is responsive – whatever support hours you may need – insulating you against the risk of shadow IT.

APPLICATION MANAGEMENT TIPS

Legacy Application Management and Support

Crimson’s legacy application management services are for organisations faced with managing legacy business-critical bespoke applications built on .NET, AS/400 or COBOL PL/I.

To date these technologies have given you a competitive advantage and an application closely aligned to business needs. But maintaining the system and keeping up with changing demands is beginning to put a strain on the organisation that if left unchecked has the potential to undermine your efficiency and competitiveness. Typical problems faced by IT teams with legacy applications can include:

  • Finding staff with the relevant technical skills to maintain the system.
  • Attracting talent who would instead prefer to work on the latest technology.
  • Retaining staff who aren’t interested in application maintenance or providing out-of- hours support.
  • Finding the time for IT teams to be more strategic and consider your next phase.
  • Convincing the board for more financial support, despite increasing risk to the business.
