Business Information, Application & IT Service Management
Properly executed Business Information Management, Application Management and IT Service Management, is essential for the operations of any organisation. It leads to a better grip on the application and the costs during the entire Application Lifecycle.
In the Netherlands, the division of management of information through the management domains "functional management", "application management" and "technical management" is widely used. This three-way division ensures a logical division of tasks, responsibilities and authorities and contributes to the stability and continuity of the organisation. During the entire life cycle, it is important that the activities within the different domains connect well and that the teams involved work well together.
The need for companies to work Agile and thereby be able to respond more quickly to the changing market also requires closer cooperation between application management and application development. This has led to DevOps. The CIMSOLUTIONS specialists are involved in the introduction of DevOps teams at various customers. An important condition for successful DevOps is to automate work as much as possible, such as automated setting up of environments on servers, automated testing of systems, Continuous Integration and the automated deployment of the software across the environments.
