Application Management Services allow digital projects to be operated stably and efficiently. In order to offer you a professional Application Management Service, our operations team and application managers take a close look at your IT applications and keep an eye on all individual specifics. This is the only way we can quickly and correctly classify error messages such as "The payment process is not running in Mexico" and optimize the software in the long term. The diva-e team is the customer's "single point of contact" for all questions relating to your application landscape and the technical operation of business-critical projects.
The extended Application Management Services are usually planned, estimated and individually approved or requested by the customer. It is advisable to contractually agree a certain number of hours or days in advance to make billing easier.
The services are charged on a time and material basis. The agreement and definition of responsibilities take place as part of the transformation project. Any expenses incurred are estimated on tickets.
The goal of Problem Management is to minimize adverse effects on service quality and availability caused by single or recurring incidents or to prevent the occurrence of incidents altogether. Within the scope of Problem Management, the causes of incidents or potential disruption points are analyzed, and appropriate measures are initiated through Change Enablement. This ensures optimal operational stability of the respective service.
The aim of Change Enablement is to manage and implement changes to applications, management systems (e.g., monitoring, delivery), or other contractual services in an organized process. This also includes overseeing the hosting partner and, if necessary, other service providers.
Processing all requests (e.g. information, consulting) and defined standard changes that are not covered by Change Enablement (e.g. provision of access).
