Managed application

Operational management of off-the-shelf and/or bespoke applications, optionally including configuration-specific and code-level management.

Our Managed Application service looks after the day-to-day running of your applications, freeing you up to focus on more strategic work.

We can take care of anything from the operational administration of hosted applications, to configuration-specific and code-level management. If you already use our Cloud Compute or Private Cloud Compute services you can also benefit from our Managed Application service.

Why outsource your application management?

  • Savings – make time, money and other limited resources go further by taking the strain off your staff.
  • Peace of mind – your applications will be safe in the hands of our skilled and experienced support team, who'll take time to get to know your exact requirements.
  • Extra support – free up your internal team to focus on other priorities.

What's included?

You can choose from two levels of support. Whichever option you pick, you'll enjoy professional, high-quality and cost-effective levels of service, guaranteed by a comprehensive Service Level Agreement, covering:
