Optimize Application TCO

The majority of app portfolio spend goes to a select number of large applications. Reducing the total cost of the most expensive applications in an organization has an outsized impact on the application portfolio cost structure. These savings can then be applied to growth initiatives.

Rationalize Your Application and Service Portfolio

The addition of new applications is not always done in conjunction with evaluating currently available apps or the real business value these new apps provide. This can result in a lengthy list of applications that may be duplicative or simply under-utilized relative to their cost. Streamlining this portfolio unlocks investments for new opportunities.

Manage Business Unit Consumption

A partnership between technology leaders and the business requires alignment between investments and associated business initiatives and objectives. Business units want to understand their IT cost structure, the associated value, and the levers they have to control. Controlling spend through consumption choices gives business units agency over its IT budget and deepens the partnership with IT.
