Introducing the ValueBlue Application Portfolio Management solution
ValueBlue's approach to APM takes organizations further than typical application rationalization and governance initiatives.
Application Portfolio Management is a core pillar of Business Transformation. It delivers vital input for strategic transformation management, and re-uses (or introduces) existing information from the organization's enterprise architecture and business process management practices. ValueBlue delivers a solution for managing the application portfolio that is closely integrated with the organization's enterprise architecture, and the delivery of its strategic future goals and initiatives. Thanks to clear and complete insight into the application landscape and its relationships with business capabilities, processes, functionalities and enterprise architecture policies and principles, IT teams enjoy multiple benefits.
✔ Functional overlap is identified and removed. This rationalization decreases budget spent on existing applications (and potentially opens up budget for transformation initiatives).
✔ Risky applications are identified and mitigated. Thanks to the complete overview of relationships between applications and business capabilities, processes, data & projects enables, insight can be derived into which capabilities, processes, data or projects are at risk at an application level, so you can prioritize where to act first.
✔ Application characteristics that facilitate future growth & expansion plans are identified. This supports the decision-making and creation of an overall optimized application landscape that allows for more flexibility, agility and faster innovation.
