Support for Mobile Apps
Three models for ongoing operational support and maintenance of apps have emerged at Emory.
Planning and budgeting for operational support and on-going maintenance of the app is a critical part of estimation and implementation process. LITS and EHC IT operational support and maintenance resources are limited and present presently focused on apps with specific compliance requirements or enterprise-wide scope. For other apps is it will often be necessary for an app owner to contract for operational support and maintenance or otherwise staff themselves to provide it.
