The first step is to understand where you're starting from. We analyze the application portfolio from multiple perspectives—cost, usage, risk and technology—to create a clear picture:
- What applications are installed?
- How well do they support your business goals?
- Which ones offer the best payback from transformation?
We often begin with an Application Transformation Experience Workshop where we jointly align future business requirements, enterprise architecture and technology trends. We may follow with more detailed assessments using our software tools and in-depth knowledge of legacy applications.
Through the assessment we:
- Discover—the components of your portfolio using software tools including our patent-pending Visual Intelligence tools.
- Analyze—to characterize each application's usage, cost, risks, security and technology.
- Decide—which applications should be transformed, and we develop a transformation roadmap with associated actions, costs and benefits.
