The growth of the application portfolio and its many duplicate applications drove IT costs to uncompetitive dimensions with its business lines. The company asked ISG to assess its application portfolio management and rationalization practices and the overall potential opportunities to significantly reduce the cost of application management and optimize services.
Imagining IT Differently
ISG captured application rationalization findings, implications and gaps. We assessed recommendations and developed an application rationalization road map in alignment with the company’s application financial allocation and IT cost savings initiatives.
