Application Portfolio Optimization helps ensure your application strategy is in tune with increasingly complex technology portfolios and legacy platforms that are not able to keep pace.
It can also help businesses derive greater value from their technology investments and “future-proof” the application landscape while optimizing their application portfolios to reduce their total cost by 10 to 15 percent on the critical applications, data, and infrastructures needed for the current and future demands of the business.
By aligning business strategy and technology strategy, companies that apply Application Portfolio Optimization are better able to reinvest in the right new technologies to improve their competitive edge.
Application Portfolio Optimization provides businesses with the necessary insight into the application portfolio to develop a strategy and plan to:
Ensure strategic alignment between the application landscape and business imperatives
Reduce application redundancies and drive standardization
Assess and address technology risks and sprawl
Analyze the functional and technical adequacy to drive alignment, standards, and identify new advanced technologies
Confirm financial fit, so the total cost of ownership is in line with the outcomes delivered, while ensuring the application portfolio is agile and flexible enough to meet current and future business requirements.
