APPLICATION HEALTH & MODERNIZATION

Make Data-Driven Decisions on App Enhancement and Rationalization

How can you measure application performance across process and data silos?

IT leaders need to modernize and rationalize their application portfolio in order to deliver on corporate strategic and business objectives. At the same time, they also need to make operational decisions regarding maintaining or enhancing applications that are aligned with business needs. However, without a single source of truth for performance metrics across applications they often end up making suboptimal decisions, resulting in reduced IT effectiveness and lowered ROI.

Proliferation of apps across LOB, function, geography

High TCO of maintaining redundant legacy apps

Siloed views of applications data across multiple systems of record

Fragmentation across app portfolio, delivery, and support teams

  • Prioritize enhancement efforts for problem areas based on a holistic view of application performance and customer impact
  • Enable IT to proactively provide the best user experience and avert outages through continuous visibility using composite measures and trends — an ongoing IT business review (NowBR™)
  • Communicate the value of IT services back to the business through an established framework and enable consistent decisions via standardized processes

Application Rationalization

Provide continuous shared insights for senior IT executives across the application portfolio and foster a consistent process for strategic IT rationalization and modernization decisions.

  • Identify candidates for application decommissioning based on metrics like production quality, support costs, and usage
  • Identify applications with business and technical risk through visibility into quality and technical health issues, vendor, and support risks
  • Manage technical risk through visibility into upgrade & replacement needs driven by end of support milestones for critical applications
  • Prioritize application upgrade projects based on magnitude of adverse user impact and IT support costs
  • Measure results of application modernization initiatives, like performance improvement and service/support cost reductions; revalidate decisions and make course corrections
