Regaining Control of Your Application Portfolio
In today’s world of anytime, anywhere connectivity through social networks and mobile applications, the demand for instant-on, personal choice and just-in-time capacity is exploding. This high demand for the always-connected government and market place is driving application utilization upward. There are more applications available than ever before - standard apps, mission-critical proprietary apps - all needing to coexist in a way that provides a superior citizen, consumer and worker experience.
The complexity, duplication, and shortage of skills and budgets have begun to create a barrier to application productivity. Without a smarter approach, business and government environments cannot keep pace with the increasing demand for innovation and, at the same time, support older application technology. One quick answer to the struggle of maintaining applications has been to rip and replace, but that often means more disruption and cost to the government or business and, many times, results in an unsatisfactory outcome.
The Ultimate Question: Are You Controlling Your Applications, or Are Your Applications Controlling You?
The challenge is how to reduce application footprints, costs and risks while supporting a growing expectation around innovation and user experience. But adding more technology to gain productivity does not meet either goal. The answer is not to add more or to rip and replace, but to extract more business value from fewer, existing applications and to take advantage of emerging application delivery models, such as Cloud and Software as a Service.
