The application services team will collaborate with the web communications team to refine elements of design and usability.
The Application Services lead will work closely with the interaction designer, the web communications team, and with OVPUE units to identify needs and manage development projects—allowing developers to focus on development.
The applications team will continue to refine and align development and operations practices with industry best practices in efficient code development, versioning, testing and deployment.
By using development frameworks and enterprise-supported development software, application development will become more efficient allowing more time for designing creative solutions for OVPUE units.
The applications team will continue to divest administrative support of completed development projects to the Support Services team. Older applications that are costly in maintenance resources will be rebuilt to reduce the costs.
