Consulting Services Across the Application Lifecycle
For many software delivery engagements, “going live” defines an end point where vendor responsibilities abruptly stop or taper off significantly. Issues that arise in the production environment become your responsibility, sapping staff time and crowding out capacity to deliver against other IT priorities.
AT&T application consulting services span the full software lifecycle to help you expand capabilities, improve business processes and increase application value.
At AT&T, our approach to application consulting entails assessment, delivery and management services that span the entire software lifecycle. We help our clients to improve business processes, expand capabilities, increase application value and free internal resources. Our consulting services include:
- Planning and strategy
- Software implementation
- Custom application development
- Systems integration
- Upgrades and enhancements
Application consulting experts
The AT&T application consulting team includes business and technical experts in both enterprise and eCommerce applications that have real-word, cross-industry experience. With a wide range of credentials and skills in over 150 types of technologies, we can apply:
