The demands on today’s applications are changing. They must be securely integrated in real-time with disparate data sources. They need to exchange data with other systems on public cloud, private cloud, traditional systems and other third-party ecosystems in a world of hybrid technology.

Businesses are increasingly looking to move or build applications on public cloud platforms to improve agility and responsiveness to market demands — but this shift to the public cloud brings new complexities. Applications become more composite – leveraging not only capabilities like storage and database offered by the cloud providers, but also third-party SaaS capabilities like email and messaging. So understanding availability of an application requires inspecting the infrastructure, the services it consumes and the health of the application. The composite nature of cloud applications requires visibility into all the services to determine overall health and uptime.

ASL Business Solutions believes that a public cloud platform should not equal less visibility. Our private cloud application management solutions make it possible to gain deeper insight into the application, as well as implement enterprise policies like governance/auditing and environment management. These cloud-based monitoring and management services can collect a multitude of events, analyze them and identify critical information that requires additional remedial actions like adjusting capacity or provisioning new services. Additionally, tools and processes currently used for managing other environments can continue to be used, enabling efficient operations.

ASL Business Solutions’s Cloud Application Management solutions can help you:

  • Gain an integrated view into your public cloud solution, including not just the application itself but also the underlying infrastructure, platform level services, as well as higher and third party SaaS capabilities

  • Use our cloud-based monitoring and management services to proactively gather input from multiple sources and generate insights

  • Extend and integrate enterprise policies and processes to your public cloud solutions to ensure maximum control and efficiency   

Like software development, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) continues to evolve. Many organizations employ some or every ALM process and tool, using the framework of a single methodology. But many projects and programs require varying degrees of management and governance. The fact is that the scope of ALM has changed: While it was once only applied to requirements, development and testing, it is now applied to a much broader spectrum of the lifecycle.

At ASL Business Solutions, we believe that the best approach is to use an ALM framework to enable a variety of methodologies, using a holistic approach tailored to your organizational needs. ASL Business Solutions Application Lifecycle Management delivers the following benefits:

  • Uses the Microsoft online assessment tool, to help you identify weaknesses, assessing each one in full to understand its impact on your organization

  • Leverages ASL Business Solutions’s ALM expertise gained from delivering thousands of applications, many of which were implemented by cross-functional teams at multi-site locations

  • Finds the balance between your need for change and minimizing disruption with a detailed process which examines your current toolset and skills base

  • Designs your development architecture and creates a roadmap for implementation, taking into account multiple factors, such as different levels of governance
