Many organizations are facing the pressure to adapt their business model in some way to changing market conditions. Whether it is entering new markets, improving your customer service levels or streamlining a supply chain, your organization relies on application development to architect and build, and application management to support and enable ongoing change and innovation. Many organizations approach application development and management with disparate rather than complementary approaches such as, with separate internal groups or external vendors focused on each stage of the application life cycle. Thus, developers often design and build applications with minimal consideration of how they will be managed on an ongoing basis, resulting in higher costs and risk, incremental management complexity and suboptimal service levels.
IBM Design-build-manage services combine industry specific development and systems integration capabilities with ongoing application support, maintenance and enhancement into an integrated, end-to-end process. By combining previously separate design-build-manage functions into one outsourced process, you can lower your applications’ total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase time-to-market.
