Application rationalization roadmap

The application rationalization roadmap provides a timeline view of the applications used by the various business entities and grouped by the application categories. You can navigate to the roadmap any time during the step-by-step process of creating goals, ideas, demands, and projects to see how the submitted ideas affect the application roadmap.

The strategy of the application is derived from the most recent accepted idea on the application for the selected fiscal period. The rationalization roadmap predicts future application rollouts considering the eliminate/replace strategies.

The Application Roadmap has the following sections:

  • Application Roadmap: Gives a tabular view of the application categories for the fiscal period along with the consolidated rollout details.
  • Portfolio Overview: Clicking any application tile in the Application Roadmap section lists details such as the business application record information, number of accepted ideas, and estimated benefit from ideas for the given fiscal period. It gives a quick access to application records.
  • Legends: Gives the color-coded information of the strategy.
