Application Management Services (AMS) have evolved over the years in tandem with changing technologies and enterprise priorities. The focus of application management has historically been improving productivity and reducing costs while ensuring applications are up and running. Next-generation application management is the evolution of traditional AMS. More mature models of service delivery, newer financial constructs, and evolved governance models along with the use of more advanced technologies are some of the differentiating factors of next-generation AMS vis-à-vis traditional AMS. Enterprises are increasingly demanding next-generation AMS from their service providers in order to cut the run spend and divert it toward modernization and creation of new assets.
This year’s Everest Group PEAK Matrix® for Next-generation Application Management Service Providers 2021 names Accenture as a Leader in both Vision & Capability and Market Impact.
