Application Management

Leverage the power of Business-Enabling services to secure competitive advantage with Atos Right-Fit Application Management


Process and application transformation for smart business models


Today’s banks and other financial organizations often have complex IT landscapes, including legacy applications inter-linked with modern architectures, resting on fragmented over-complex infrastructures which are costly to maintain, difficult to modernize and slow down time to market.  This not only may lead to unexpected consequences with routine upgrades but more importantly compromises competitive advantage.


To survive and to compete, the business needs to evolve from current ‘product’ and ‘channel’ driven approaches to become genuinely customer centric organizations offering compelling user experience.


A significant transformation of these applications and of the service to support and maintain them is the key to the smart business models of the future. In the race for faster time to market, organizations now urgently need to base their business success on a solid foundation of smart best of breed applications with notably:


  • In-depth legacy and transformation strategies and expertise critical in maintaining the quality of legacy for business continuity 
  • Cloud model exploitation providing more agile application development and utility provisioning e.g. PaaS, Banking SaaS
  • Optimized Global/Near/On-shore sourcing models to leverage domain expertise, cost and flexibility benefits
  • Extension of applications to support mobility, social collaboration and predictive analytics
