Agile for Enterprise Application Maintenance and Support

In today’s digital era Organizations have to rely on software applications to drive their business growth. Defining new strategies to increase their customer base and new revenue channels is important.

Organizations have to build Application Maintenance and Support (AMS) Team to ensure all applications and software are running seamlessly. Everything around us is evolving so quickly including technologies, market conditions and customer expectations. Merely fixing bugs and maintaining software is not sufficient. Enhancing user experience, improving performance, maintaining sustainability and staying competitive are crucial for success.

Agile Methodology is based on empirical process and it enables organizations to adapt and respond to changes quickly in Product Development Cycle. Can Organizations apply Agile Principals to AMS? Besides responding to customer fast can AMS be leverage for collecting user data efficiently to define user centric solutions?

I will be unfolding answers to these question during my Presentation using my own journey as Change Agent. I will share how organizations can evolve AMS teams as part of their Agile Transformation Journey.

    I like these aspects of the submission, and they should be retained:

    • I like the topic and relevance

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    • shorten the description to 100 words or so. This is an advertisement that people will read to decide whether to attend
    • eliminate buzz words and promotion from the description (e.g. "In future applications are going to be Always On! Agile AMS is first step towards it."
    • legends for the graphs, e.g. on slide 7
