Application rationalization for superior ROI: Building a lean and cost-effective IT portfolio

In today’s hyper-competitive business environment as organizations strive to achieve leaner operations, rationalizing the application portfolio is a critical first step. A comprehensive exercise in portfolio rationalization not only optimizes the total cost of ownership (TCO) of IT investments but also aligns the IT environment with business needs, enabling the creation of an enterprise-wide integrated IT environment.
