What is Application Management Outsourcing?

Application management outsourcing

Application Management Outsourcing (AMO), also known as Application Management Services (AMS), refers to services provided by some organizations to companies that need to outsource their application management processes. In other words, AMO is basically when you outsource the task of providing ongoing support for your applications to an external provider.

At Teisoft, the application management services are designed to release our clients not only from the hosting management responsibility but also from:

  • Bug fixes
  • SEO Optimizations (If apply)
  • Minor enhancements
  • Release management
  • Database administration
  • Application monitoring
  • 24x7 Client support
  • Consultation, estimating, and check-in calls
  • Why Application Management Outsourcing is a Good Choice?

    Let's say you are a business owner and have a web application that is your business's face. You would probably need to make frequent changes to keep it up to date. Maybe you need to change the content, the design, or maybe modify some features, to name a few. Let's assume that you hire a web developer on a full-time basis so he can help you with your changes all the time. A web developer in the US would cost you approximately $60,000 a year, according to Payscale. So far, so good.

    It turns out that finding a web developer with the required skills to fulfill all your needs is not always an easy task. Developers can be experts working in the front-end while they lack the knowledge to deal with database issues. Or maybe they are extremely good at programming, but they are not security experts. In that case, how would you deal with security vulnerabilities?

    At this point, you might find yourself in a position to consider hiring another developer so they can complement each other. It will cost you another $60,000, not to mention the costs associated with the hosting or the hardware, which is even more expensive. At this pace, the maintenance of your web application could cost you $120,000 a year, which is $10,000 per month.


    How to lower the monthly cost of maintenance?

    If all you need is someone taking care of your applications so you can take care of your business, then why don't you pay for a service that will cover all your needs at a lower price? Yes, we are talking about application management services. At Teisoft, our Managed Hosting plans include application management services, which in turn include several monthly maintenance hours that can be used by our clients to make small enhancements to their applications.

    Our hosting plans prices vary from $99 to $999 per month, depending on your needs. It means that, in the worst-case scenario, the maintenance would cost you $12,000 a year (including the hosting management costs) instead of $120,000. That’s an unbelievable 90% off.
