Application Maintenance Methodology

Emalgam has perfected its methodology for the gradual transfer of duties from customer's in-house maintenance team to our offshore team. While there are variations depending on the nature of the application and the scope of the project, in most maintenance projects our four-phased approach has proven to be the most effective. The process begins with our offshore attending to non-vital tasks and gradually reaches the level where our team will assume complete responsibility for systems management and upkeep. Emalgam's proven methodologies help breaking down the maintenance process into systematic levels, and sets goals accordingly for maintaining agreed service levels.

This process is accomplished in four phases:

P h a s e I

  • Select team based upon the execution platform, operating systems, software environment, business environment, databases, etc.

Facing the unpredictable economy, customers are increasingly demanding the flexibility, which best serves, their unique business strategies. emalgam provides the option of a combination of business models to suit various phases of a project cycle. There are two approaches for recruitment and training, which are as follows:

Emalgam’s Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model

This Build-Operate-Transfer Model suits independent software vendors and companies who are interested in the benefits of an offshore subsidiary but are concerned about the inherent risks. In this model, companies could rapidly commence offshore operations and own an entire offshore facility with a minimal investment. It can be defined by explaining each of the three steps:
Build an offshore facility for the customer, using emalgam’s personnel, knowledge and infrastructure as core resources.

Operate the offshore facility and customize it in order to provide the right tools for satisfying the customer's needs; the activities include Program Database Management, Custom Website Development, QA, Software Application, Maintenance, Enhancement and Product Support.

Transfer the complete ownership of the facility and resources to the client.

Clients can realize following benefits by working with BOT model:

  • Increases Flexibility
  • Reduce Management Overhead
  • Control Costs For Independent Software Vendors And Technology Companies.
  • Leverages emalgam’s Exceptional Development Campus In India.
  • To make new scenarios possible
  • More Flexible Transfer Timing
  • Ongoing Hybrid Management Services

Emalgam believes that the BOT Model is essentially a way for any client to set up a subsidiary in India in a phased, carefully managed, low risk manner. Client would benefit a lot from employing this model. Not only can they reduce their risks but also smoothly establish their roots into Indian market with higher efficiency and flexibility. However, once established, we believe the subsidiary should not just be about cutting costs; it should be a beachhead for creating and servicing new markets in the Asia Pacific and Middle Eastern regions. We have personnel experienced in executing this model successfully, and the infrastructure and operational flexibility to tailor a strategy that meets your short and long term business requirements.

Emalgam’s FEE Based (Extended Team) Model
