SMSS engages customer champions, accelerates user-community readiness, and streamlines change management.

SMSS is a partnership between Innovative-e and the customer where the customer is the ultimate decision maker. SMSS combines fixed-fee predetermined monthly recurring activities with a flexible, pre-budgeted, rate-based elastic services amount.

Growth Phase

Optimization Phase

ALM Model. Dedicated Team

The managed services approach for Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) provides dedicated resources to focus on solution/product ongoing development and enhancement. The advantage of this approach over individual SOW based engagements is threefold:

  • Resource knowledge retention making each resource more efficient
  • Application of software development dedicated team (aka agile) practices to optimize feature/functionality delivery throughput
  • Lower management andcontracting overhead

Customers leveraging this model realize a larger body of work completed for a given timeframe vs the same spend on SOW based engagements.
