Application development is the development of new applications which may be mainframe, server, network, web or a combination and may require interfaces to existing applications. Application maintenance and support includes troubleshooting, modifying, maintaining, improving security, and enhancing legacy systems and applications that may be running in a production environment.

It can also include introducing new technologies to the business and managing any changes resulting from the introduction. Transformation can include assessments of the current application portfolio, an assessment of technology assets before beginning technology transformation, and developing a business case to justify an initiative. Part of the transformation journey may include planning, analysis, requirements development, proof of concept, deployment, implementation, integration, remediation, data migration, documentation, programming applications and support services, as well as training support.
