ASL (Applications Services Library) is the only public domain standard in the world, dedicated to application management; the maintenance and control, enhancement and renovation of applications. In this framework all relevant processes are described to deliver a full applications management service to the customer/business organization.
The framework brings the processes together, categorizes best practices, as well as creating a glossary of terminology that makes it easier for parties concerned with applications management to communicate with each other.
As a public domain process framework everybody can use the knowledge provided in this framework and its related 'best practices'.
The ASL Bill Foundation (formerly ASL foundation) is responsible for the maintenance and renewal of the framework and the related 'best practices'. It seeks to bring business and IT closer together.
