Application Modernization & Optimization: Services overview

Our Accenture Application Modernization and Optimization (AMO) Services help organizations strip out unnecessary operating costs while reducing capital spend and freeing IT staff to create value for the business.

Overview

CIOs and IT departments have never been under greater pressure to do more with less. With 70 percent of the typical organization’s global transactions running on legacy applications, the spotlight has shifted to how well the application portfolio can drive business results and support innovation while keeping costs under control.

Our Accenture Application Modernization and Optimization (AMO) Services help organizations strip out unnecessary operating costs while reducing capital spend and freeing IT staff to create value for the business. Our specialists can assist in answering the big questions about whether to renew, replace, consolidate, retire, enhance—or rebuild—applications in the portfolio.

The outcome:

  • More value from existing applications with reduced costs,

  • More manageable application portfolios,

  • Limited business disruption and decreased risk.
