SituationLarge organizations have vast application and technology landscapes that have grown organically and can be extremely complex, particularly where mergers and acquisitions or transformations are involved. While duplication increases costs, low transparency and outdated technologies pose risks to the organization. To create a more effective IT landscape, you need to have a full overview of the application portfolio, so you can strategically plan and modernize your entire system.
ChallengeBut because of the complexity of the application landscape, and the fact that knowledge is distributed between both stakeholders and data silos, it is extremely difficult to get a full overview of your application and technology landscape. The cloud only complicates things further, as new cloud services and SaaS products are added to the portfolio literally on a daily basis. This situation makes it extremely hard to plan and not only leads to higher costs, but also increases the risk of missing out on potential innovations.
