Application Portfolio Optimization

Beniva delivered an end-to-end solution that included working with the IT team to first capture a detailed inventory of the application landscape - including financial data. We call this the “data grind phase”. Next, all of those applications were mapped to a business capability model and evaluated for size, redundancy, spend, opportunity and complexity to create a prize tracker - that is a list of opportunities and a proposed recommendation for EACH application. Lastly, Beniva facilitated all stakeholders (including the business team members) through rationalization. Efficient and effective
