AST Corporation

Situation

Upon completion of an earlier project, the LeapFrog platform, Realtor.com and AST realized the need to streamline production support. Support tasks required significant time from project developers, reducing their availability to implement new features and perform critical development tasks.

Realtor.com needed a qualified team to maintain the implemented solution.  It required a partner that could skillfully maintain its current system and ensure an efficient and effective workflow.

AST’s Managed Services team aimed to implement a modernized process for production support, providing dedicated resources to ensure issues were addressed in a timely manner.

The AST team has been at the core of this transformation and very effective on this entire program. They [have worked] hand-in-hand with the PMO and are responsible for large parts of the Oracle implementation.”
