Technology is changing at a fast pace, and nowhere is this more true than in the area of web applications. Organizations that use online applications to help grow their business may feel besieged by the ways in which deployment and use of these programs is rapidly shifting from traditional desktop and laptop to PCs to new devices such as tablets and cell phones. In addition, the proliferation of such devices and the demand for consumer-friendly apps has created an environment in which apps can be customized for many different classes of user. This, of course, only tends to increase the challenges of web app management.
One solution to these challenges is to make web app management one of the responsibilities taken care of by a managed programs model for IT solutions. In this approach to meeting a business's ongoing needs in the realm of IT, staff from an IT company visit to provide expert administration, overseeing systems and processes as needed to be sure that all IT functions in their purview run smoothly.
A managed programs approach will mean that web app management will no longer be done in a haphazard manner or be performed by in-house staff who lack experience, for example, in the ways in which web apps can be hosted on a data center. With managed programs staff, the proliferation of web apps will no longer pose the same kind of management challenge. This will allow developers and other personnel to concentrate on their own areas of expertise, the creation of customer-friendly apps in the first place.
