Application Strategy

Accenture’s Application Strategy Services help clients define application development and management strategy to derive more value from their applications.


Today’s IT and business executives are faced with the challenge of managing complex legacy environments while also trying to capture the opportunities of today’s emerging technologies, including digital, within the context of the overall business and IT strategy.

Our Application Strategy services help clients define an application development and management strategy, business case, and roadmap to support the overall business and IT Strategy enabling our clients to:

  • Better manage legacy systems that are increasingly costly due to licensing, maintenance and are inflexible to align with the business strategy.

  • Unleash value from emerging technologies, including digital—in a clear, consistent and strategic manner.

  • Transform their application portfolio by proactively planning and managing the end users provisioning of applications not supported by IT and ultimately derive more value from their applications.
