Streamline your application portfolio to help cut costs, fund innovation and reduce risk
sponsored by IBM
There likely are thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of interconnected applications in your organization that hold little or no business value whatsoever, draining already stretched IT resources and funneling money out of your business.
Applications age, grow weak and are difficult to support and enhance. Yet despite this obvious obstruction to value, executives fear the risk involved in optimizing their application portfolio.
But there is no reward without risk.
This paper outlines the need for an application portfolio management (APM) solution and why a successful venture depends on visibility and an accurate portrayal of the portfolio. Discover why it's pivotal to understand which business processes your employees rely on in each application and to what degree, and why the proper level of visibility leads to well-informed decisions about retiring or replacing applications.
