CHALLENGES

The project had Some Antiquated technologies and deployment practices. The operating systems and platforms were also obsolete
One of the major concerns was a lack of both general and coding specific best practices which had to be rectified for the smooth navigation through client requirements.
Lack of adequate documentation for reference was also one of the challenges since the information was scattered across various resources.

Solution

Implemented a 24/7 Support model across support areas including: Application Maintenance Services included activities associated with fixing defects and issues in applications, as well as developing small enhancements for the applications

  • Evaluating and prioritizing the problem log and seeking approvals to proceed from the Client IT Leadership Team and Developed approved functional enhancements (new features, interfaces, databases, etc.)

  • Ensuring that all changes conform to change control procedures and Release packaging for all releases
  • Emergency and Corrective Maintenance, creating a problem log, resolving those problems, and eliminating them in the future constitute Preventive Maintenance.
  • Release Management and Packaging
  • Small enhancements for feature additions and as part of the problem management as approved by the Client
