First step in application landscape cleanup

Your company is growing fast. You are breaking sales records and taking over other companies. Together with your team, you celebrate these victories and are positive about the future. However, you know that this growth comes with challenges. For instance, a rapidly expanding application landscape that is hard to stay in control of.

Unnecessary applications

A rapidly growing application landscape can cause both short-term and long-term problems. This is why businesses knock on our door regularly when they want to “rationalize their application landscape”. Businesses want to redesign their application portfolio so that it better suits the organization’s needs and goals. For instance, some applications can turn out to be redundant while others are used far too little.

Benefits of application rationalization

In recent years we have accomplished decluttered and optimally performing application landscapes for many organizations. Such a streamlined landscape delivers major benefits, such as:

  • Substantial cost savings through the right license structure
  • Improving efficiency
  • Increasing flexibility and agility
  • Improving user experience
  • Improving security and compliance

The first step: a shared vision

If you want to get started with rationalization, start by creating a shared vision of the redesigned application landscape. A shared vision gives both direction and speed to the rationalization process. We help you formulate such a vision using the following four steps:

  1. We share the latest market trends and best practices. What does the information landscape of industry peers look like? What opportunities and threats are there for your organization?
  2. We create a sense of urgency. To keep up with or stay ahead of the competition, the organization must act. How does the rationalization exercise contribute to this?
  3. Together we formulate project goals for the various departments within your organization. What is needed to achieve these goals?
  4. Before we get started, we determine the scope of the rationalization. That first step includes the segregation of duties: who is expected to do what during this process?

Are you ready to rationalize the application landscape of your organization?
