Rationalise and modernise your application estate

Citizen expectations around what software applications can do are increasing exponentially. They want on-demand, self-service applications that connect them to their data and reduce their need to re-enter information multiple times.
Incremental changes introduced over many years often result in legacy application estates that are disconnected, difficult and costly to manage and not always suited to the digital agenda.

HP Applications Services can help you rationalise, integrate and modernise your application portfolio to support Open Standards, embrace agile development, and exploit cloud hosting platforms.

We bring together your policy goals, governance and security concerns and financial considerations to plan and execute an applications transformation that reduces costs, and builds innovation and optimisation into the application management lifecycle.

The possibilities for the UK public sector

Simplify management

  • Gain broad portfolio and application-level visibility of performance and progression of the application lifecycle.
  • Eliminate legacy programming languages and embrace Open Source technologies and Open Standards to simplify support and integration.
Reduce costs

  • Move appropriate applications to the cloud and embrace a shared-services model to reduce licensing and management costs.
  • Automate testing and prioritise support on a per-application basis, then scale and budget in line with organisational requirements.
Meet citizen expectations

  • Deliver digital services via the web and mobile platforms.
  • Streamline application interdependency and integration to allow employees to perform core business processes faster and more accurately.
