Application strategy

Application Portfolio Management provides a platform to make strategic decisions. The strategy must be aligned to the organizational goals. APM supports collecting metrics for the applications across various dimensions, which helps create strategic goals and track ideas and programs.

The Application Portfolio Management strategy menu has the following modules:

  • Home
  • Analyze
  • Ideas
  • Goals
  • Programs
  • Roadmap

Application Portfolio Management provides a platform to:

  • Strategize each application whether to invest, consolidate, migrate, sustain, replace, or retire based on the organization goals, application score, or indicator scores.
  • Create strategic goals and track ideas and programs. For example, you can set a goal and create a program to reduce the cost of application support by 50%, or cut down the capital expense (CAPEX) of an application by 40%.
  • Estimate or determine the applications assessment scores. For example, if an application score is low because of low business value and low customer satisfaction, then you can initiate an idea to invest in the application to improve the same.
