Challenges in application management
Your organization may have thousands of different applications and it’s your job to consistently and constantly assess their health and value to provide a sound basis for decision making. You’ll have to research the impact that replacing or retiring an application would have on business units, departments or the entire organization. Plus, there is always the “innovation squeeze,” where the entire change budget is eaten up just keeping the lights on. As an Application Portfolio Manager, it’s your duty to navigate all of these areas adeptly. The good news, BiZZdesign is here to help.
Make smart decisions on your application portfolio
The BiZZdesign portfolio management functionality helps you organize your IT and application portfolios. You can subdivide your application portfolios in separate sub portfolios with individual budgets, set a different pace of change and even create distinct evaluation criteria for each. You can define various metrics to assess the business value, technical value, cost, risk and other aspects of their contents.
Moreover, the integration with enterprise architecture gives you key insights into how other systems, business processes, services or external parties depend on these applications so you can assess the impact of portfolio decisions and plan changes in a coherent way.
