Corporations are increasingly looking to outsource at least some of their IT infrastructure as well as the management of applications. Further, companies are looking for a “one throat to choke” approach when it comes to outsourcing some IT functions. Enter SunGard – offering both the back-end technology hosting services coupled with applications and domain expertise to support the applications. This is Total Production Support.
SunGard AvantGard can provide receivables; treasury and payments solutions coupled with IT support for hosting of the applications as well as managed services to support daily administrative requirements. By offering domain expertise coupled with market leading IT support services, SunGard can compete with IBM, Cap Gemini or Accenture for the delivery of hosting and application services.
