Simplify and reduce the risks and cost of the application portfolio.

Application Portfolio Management (APM) can be used to analyze application inventories for cost reduction and risk, delivering the insights CIOs need to make the right decisions to enable a modern workforce.

With APM, organizations can:

  • Simplify IT support and reduce the costs of supporting redundant, under-used or obsolete applications
  • Identify and rationalize applications to understand their associated costs, risks and business value
  • Optimize IT transformation by benchmarking application quality, productivity and business alignment
  • Identify the mission-criticality and risk profile of each application
  • Determine the best ways to leverage new and existing technologies to deliver maximum business value and meet the needs of increasingly tech-savvy users

There are numerous reasons why organizations start to analyze their applications for cost reduction and risk.

Application sprawl, software redundancies and costly compliance penalties eat away at IT budget. Applications that are not in alignment with business goals do little to progress a company’s forward momentum, while a lack of visibility into the risks associated with the mission-criticality of applications impedes effective decision-making.

It’s no wonder that 74% of CIOs find it challenging to balance business innovation and operational excellence.
