Managed App Development is the practice of outsourcing or contracting out all aspects of an app's development to a third-party service provider. A managed app development provider will typically take full control over an app's design, development, testing, security compliance and operations. Managed app development can be contrasted with in-house or freelancer based solutions, which still require the client to manage the project but do not provide for enterprise-level features like 24/7 support and monitoring.
