We plan set of activities in order to keep a given package within its service requirements (the current release number minus 2, for example), or pool blended resources needed to support underlying technical upgrades. These resources will work on priority against projects submitted by "the business” to avoid delays in upgrades. This will also improve the user adoption reducing operational bottlenecks.
CXDesk carries out minor enhancement work such as "change requests" (CRs) or "service requests" (SRs) and is generally capped by how long they take, or a predetermined cost limit. These limits vary widely by organization. Smaller organizations may look at these activities as anything under 100 hours (or equivalent cost). For a large organization, it may be 200 hours. Anything over 200 hours is a "project" and shall be treated as such.
This is a significant component of the overall maintenance and support cost (for a breakdown of costs, please contact your account rep). Business support is the help provided for users and business units and helps with application operation work (such as responding to user calls or emails) on use of application functions, and consulting to users and business units.
These are provided by blended pool of talent at CXDesk. Some of the services may (directly) be provided by OEM or Other Third Party Provider. CXDesk primarily offers:
Software maintenance: Maintaining the package.
Application management: Technical and business function support services.
Application operations: Patches and work done to the underlying technology.
User adoption/Training: Users are trained to increase CRM adoption levels.
