The paper is devoted to the topics of self-management and its implementation. Self-management features are intended to support the usage and maintenance processes in information systems life cycle. Four self-management types are analyzed in the paper. Run-time verification and environment testing can be implemented without any intervention in base business processes, while self-testing and business process incorporation in system require an instrumentation of the base business processes. The approach is applied in praxis and shows that the implementation of self-management features requires relatively modest resources.
