Aligning IT with business objectives and ensuring that it generates maximum business
value, is a primary goal of a CIO. In today's fast track IT environment,it is not
unusual to observe that about 75-80% of an organization's IT budget is spent on
Application management / maintenance. In addition, over the years legacy applications
have become the operational and knowledge backbone of organizations; they are non-negotiable
and crucial to business survival. Market research estimates that more than 70% of
corporate data still resides on legacy systems. In such a scenario, managing key
assets like the Application Portfolio of an organization at an optimal level of
efficiency is an important aspect of aligning IT to business.
At MNJ Software we believe that Application Portfolio Management is not just about running
multiple enhancement projects or maintaining applications. In a strategic initiative,
that IT and business groups should jointly plan and execute, each asset in the Portfolio
needs to be assessed in terms of its business value and "total cost of ownership".
Similar to a financial portfolio, the application portfolio must be monitored and
re-valued continuously and altered to suit the enterprise's business goals.
