Application development and maintenance (ADM) is the part of IT that works closely with the business to develop new software, keep it running, and make ongoing improvements. Within this part of IT, business analysts and software developers communicate with executives on the business side to understand their requirements for new and existing applications. In most companies, ADM teams are organized around application areas (for example, customer relationship management)rather than business functions.
Enterprises have experienced that they have to devote a significant portion of their budgets and staff for day-to-day maintenance of legacy systems.

It is a fundamental work for us to understand the business processes, the size and complexity of the application by studying the project information provided through multiple communication ways like conference calls, e-mail, in-person to get detailed understanding of your requirement. However, if the project is a continuously-developed one, this step can be skipped.

The enhancement requests of maintenance/support may originate from client or from defect reports. The analysis of a reported problem may lead to new requirements which will be prioritized in discussing with client. Once a request is approved, it runs through analysis, system design, coding, unit testing, integration testing. The developers monitor the implemented changes in next few days to make sure that the application is running fine.
