The need for application portfolio management
Application portfolio management encompasses the assessment, rationalization and optimization of an organization’s entire application portfolio. This process drives your business to reduce functional redundancy, minimize cost and align IT investments with business strategy.
Many organizations waste effort and money running and maintaining unnecessary applications. Worse yet, they may face increased risk from higher complexity and aging technologies in their IT landscape. When an organization has excessive applications, it will experience higher barriers to fast and effective business change thanks to the challenges of impact and dependencies.
Without an enterprise-wide view of the entire application portfolio and how it links to the dimensions of business, information, technology and change, it is impossible to make informed decisions that align resources with business strategy.
