Rethink and simplify your application portfolio to support an agile business environment
Business demands are changing at a rapid pace, leading to IT leaders working hard to deliver business results leveraging all the IT Investments that the organization has done across the years. As businesses grew organically and otherwise, applications were added (or acquired) to cater to different requirements, and over time, the portfolio of applications needed to support the business became increasingly complex and difficult to manage saddling organizations with a number of disparate applications. This would include applications that have been deployed recently using the latest technologies and those that are part of their legacy. These applications may be serving critical business functions or helping drive significant revenues. The applications could be on older technology platforms as also be out of sync with the business processes evolution in the organization or be used by just a handful of users or lack the needed process/technical documentation etc.
While some organizations classify applications by Tiers others use nomenclatures like current and legacy etc. For supporting, enhancing, upgrading and maintaining applications, organizations spend large amounts of money. Given the cost pressures on Global Businesses, most organizations look to manage their portfolio in a manner to ensure that while business continuity/value add happens, lowering the costs and efforts goes hand in hand.
We, at ITPM understand that in almost every business, the application portfolio is fundamental to day-to-day operations, and in supporting the business goals of the organization.
