Understand where the risk lies in your application portfolio, what form it takes, and how to minimise it.

How do you gauge the level of risk in your application landscape and better understand where that risk lies, what form it takes, and what its impact on strategic business objectives is?

This paper puts forward Capgemini’s proprietary Risk Assessment Model as a tool that will provide IT decision makers with the answer to this question. Capgemini’s approach is based on analysing the applications in question from multiple angles, including: application stability, source code availability, documentation levels, technology obsolescence and availability of skilled staff.

The insight garnered through this multi-angle analysis is used to generate a comprehensive risk analysis of the application landscape. Based on the insight generated by this analysis, Capgemini’s approach also puts forward a choice of strategies and recommendations aimed at mitigating the risks discovered.
