Application Maintenance Methodology :
Somex Software Services has perfected its methodology for the gradual transfer of duties from customer's in-house maintenance team to our offshore team. While there are variations depending on the nature of the application and the scope of the project, in most maintenance projects our four-phased approach has proven to be the most effective. The process begins with our offshore attending to non-vital tasks and gradually reaches the level where our team will assume complete responsibility for systems management and upkeep. Somex Software Services’s proven methodologies help breaking down the maintenance process into systematic levels, and sets goals accordingly for maintaining agreed service levels.
