askblue adds maintenance services in new unit
askblue has launched a new business area that will integrate evolutionary maintenance services and core application support.

In this new Operations unit will also be integrated askblue technology center, a structure that is distributed between Lisbon and Coimbra and which is centered on OutSystems and .NET / SQL technologies.

The center corresponds to one of the two areas of the new unit. The other is Application Management and will be responsible for “the evolutionary maintenance and support of core client applications, including development, functional and technical design, testing, incident and problem management as well as support lines”, explains the company.

The new askblue Operations unit will be led by Miguel Freire, who will also take on roles as a partner of the company. In a statement, points out that Miguel Freire has “vast experience in the management and coordination of demanding projects in different areas”.

By the end of the year, the askblue technology center will increase the team to 20 people. The structure provides remote support services, collaborating with the companies in the maintenance of applications created by askblueor by third parties.

The askblue business was so far divided by the business areas dedicated to Consulting, Technology and Outsourcing. The creation of a new business area is explained by Pedro Nicolau, CEO of the company, as “a natural evolution of our offer and recognizes a need that we have been identifying in different customers.”
