The New Discipline in IT: Applications Support and Maintenance (ASM)
Today's CIOs are charged with an ever-broadening range of responsibilities, chief among them aligning IT with business objectives, and using IT to move the business forward. New technologies and applications that provide businesses with efficiency improvements or competitive advantages are where CIOs' careers are made. . . or broken.
Now consider the fact that up to 90% of enterprise IT spending, and the bulk of CIO attention, is paid not to strategic priorities or future developments, but to the support of existing systems. Only recently have IT leaders begun to appreciate this fact, and that Applications Support and Maintenance (ASM) requires its own skill sets, culture and best practices. Formerly the silent majority of IT spending, ASM today is the newest IT discipline.
