Managing the applications that run your business is an operational task that keeps your team from focusing on designing and implementing new technologies that have the potential to transform the business.

With Oakwood’s Application Managed Services, you can depend on Oakwood to keep the applications running, while you focus on strategic initiatives, becoming progressive instead of reactive while keeping and exceeding your service level agreements to the business.


What is Application Managed Services?

In response to our clients, Oakwood has established a managed applications services platform that allows us to proactively manage and monitor the key applications on which our clients depend. Backed by Oakwood’s broad and deep expertise across the Microsoft Stack, clients are able to redeploy resources to focus on transformational technologies while Oakwood’s team “keeps the lights on”.
