Sustaining business innovation in the face of mounting IT complexity.
IT has always been in the forefront of innovation and agility. New applications fuel an organization’s growth and productivity, automate key business processes and provide competitive edge. But inevitably, the cutting-edge systems of yesterday become today’s legacy applications.
Most organizations do not have a clear strategy for retiring legacy applications and continue to spend up to three quarters of their IT budgets just “keeping the lights on” – supporting outdated, redundant and sometimes entirely obsolete systems.
Only with a structured, methodical, and building-block approach can IT rebuild its application city, revitalize its neighborhoods, streamline its highways, and ensure its future prosperity.
