Professional Application Management Services
Software as a strategic investment is usually undertaken to generate revenue, save money or offer competitive differentiation. That is why we keep those overarching goals in mind when offering our application management services. Intelligent software can exploit information that’s already being captured to look for potential new markets, adjacencies, and/or innovations. Our application management technologies also improve efficiency by automating manual business processes and integrating data to add value in insight without requiring more from users.
When deciding what technology and tools your team will be using for the next few years, it’s important to keep in mind total cost of ownership, including training, support and continued ability to find the skill set required to maintain the application properly.
Entrance brings together consulting expertise in application performance management, data management, integration, and software advisory services to provide complete end-to-end application management solutions for your biggest business challenges.

APPLICATION & SYSTEM INTEGRATIONS
Entrance integrates systems by providing the “glue” to make your array of disparate systems all part of a single automated ecosystem. Entrance can make any combination of custom and commercial off-the-shelf applications (e.g., ERP/accounting systems) talk the same language. One of the most common integrations is to connect the primary operations/line-of-business system to the ERP/accounting system. Additionally, Entrance can build enterprise integrations using commercial integration servers or enterprise service buses.
Do you have a data warehouse? Do you need a data warehouse? Automated Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) processes are what feed your data warehouse, operational data store or master data management solution. Entrance leverages SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to implement robust enterprise data integrations.
