Application Rationalization

Application rationalization is the process of cataloging and eliminating duplicate software applications used across an organization. This allows IT departments to improve efficiency, simplify portfolio complexity, and lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for their application portfolio.

The key to improving efficiency and simplification of portfolio complexity is in creating and building a successful application rationalization framework that includes:

  1. Frame an initiative to maximize success

  2. Create an application catalog

  3. Allocate costs

  4. Calculate a score

  5. Execute a plan of action

  6. Sustain momentum


Application rationalization initiatives are most successful when the application portfolio is clearly aligned to business outcomes. In order to get the most benefit from your application rationalization initiative, you need to identify a framework for ensuring business alignment and a process that is defensible and repeatable.

We help clients create this framework and work together to conduct a complete application portfolio assessment containing all necessary information and insight to determine application efficiency across the enterprise
