IT Maintenance is a craft which has been exercised for about 40 years.
The maintenance of IT systems is something I worked on and off for the last 13 years.
Maintaining IT-systems is something with several aspects:
* Make sure that the system runs stable and smoothly
* Keep the functionality up to date
The first item knows a diversity of jobs such as (in no particular order): checking daily / weekly / monthly / yearly jobs; agreeing with the user organization on the year schedule of jobs, ordering forms in sufficient quantities, planning availability, checking continuity measures, troubleshooting production problems, informing end users of upcoming changes, and so on.
That 2nd item can be translated as: Analysing, designing, realization and implementing new releases.
This is a sequel to my previous blog. That name no longer reflected the contents. In this blog I hope to publish iregularly on ASL, FPA, EUP, BiSL and related aspects of application management.
