Simplify IT and make room for innovation and new business opportunities
CIOs and IT Executives are being asked to “do more with less”. With a complex and poorly understood application portfolio at hand a large percentage of IT funds are consumed, it leaves these CIOs and IT Executives challenged to find the funds needed for creating real value in form of innovation and enabling new business opportunities. Organizations spend too much (up to 90%) of funds on maintaining and operating an expanding application portfolio.
Transformation of an existing application portfolio can reduce overall costs of ownership and, at the same time, directly align applications with business strategy—a win-win. In the light of this, IBM Rational’s® integrated solution for Application Portfolio Management (APM) addresses these challenges and more. It helps organizations to effectively govern and analyze the application portfolio and make objective and transparent decisions around these assets, including for example; terminating, investing, consolidating, modernizing, outsource, move to cloud, or include in your mobile or compliance strategy.
