As global enterprises evolve, their IT environments grow as new applications are added to support organizational changes, mergers, acquisitions, process changes and new technologies. This leads to application sprawl with increased application management costs, reduced ROI, unnecessary complexity and security concerns. During periods of market uncertainty like the current Covid pandemic, most enterprise efforts are under significant cost pressures. This is exacerbated if there is a backlog of actions on portfolio rationalization.

With Persistent’s Application Portfolio Rationalization, businesses can streamline their existing application portfolio through a structured modernization and transformation roadmap to reduce overall operational costs and funnel that back into new digital transformation initiatives. Our tools-based, top down approach uses a systematic framework – SURE (Sustain, Update, Re-platform, Eliminate) – to help reduce IT spend on existing applications by 20-30%.

  • Significant cost savings with reduced support and maintenance cost for redundant applications
  • More manageable security compliance
  • Improved agility to respond to business needs and priorities
  • Increased opportunities for digital innovation and transformation
