Read the full case study and see how AppRx helped them identify that 50% of apps in their portfolio were candidates for rationalization.

4 Keys to Implementing an Application Rationalization Practice

The implementation of a successful application rationalization practice requires that a governance program be put in place that is comprised of:
 

1. People: Create a cross line-of-business governance body

2. Policies:  Set standards that define an application compliance and rationalization strategy

3. Processes: Workflows to rationalize the existing inventory and handle change events

4. Technology: Automate application rationalization to avoid spreadsheet chaos

Windows 7 Migration is a lot like moving to a new house

Much like a cluttered basement, an application portfolio can be bloated with redundant, unused and old applications. Retiring these applications will further reduce the scope of applications for migration and help create a lean and agile portfolio.
When it comes to your application portfolio, you can automate the 'decluttering' or rationalization process with a SaaS solution called AppRx. With just a few clicks of the mouse, list of the applications in your portfolio, you can quickly and effortlessly find out which applications in your portfolio are redundant, unused and out of date. AppRx will also help you to identify application candidates for retirement, replacement, consolidation and-or upgrade saving you and your team valuable time from painful remedial works.
