Certified Applications vs. Customer Applications
We classify the applications we manage in two categories: Certified Applications and Customer Applications. They differ in the degree of responsibility Basefarm has for the applications.
We take full responsibility for Certified Applications. These applications must meet Basefarm’s rigorous quality requirements for operability, predictability, scalability, and security. Furthermore, Certified Applications are fully integrated into our tools and application operations environment. For example, they are fully supported by our proprietary configuration management database tool.
We take limited responsibility for Customer Applications. Customer Applications can be proprietary customer-developed applications or, for example, solutions that are new to the market and which have not yet been integrated into Basefarm’s application operations environment. We run them in accordance with an agreement with the customer that covers, for example, what is defined as a problem, how do we know when it has occurred, how do we solve it, etc. The point being that we are truly your engaged and devoted partner.
