Most enterprises have up to 10,000 applications in their portfolio, but less than 40% of those applications are deemed critical to the business.[*] Organizations are spending considerable resources to increase the value of business applications that might be outdated, inefficient, or expensive to manage.
Inflexible legacy applications lower responsiveness to rapid shifts in business needs and impede the scaling-up process necessary to support business growth.
High-achieving companies have shifted their attention to how well the application portfolio can drive business results and support innovation while keeping costs under control. Rather than investing in new, packaged applications, companies seek to improve the structure, reusability, flexibility, and performance of existing business applications.
Traditional modernization methods, such as rewriting or replacing existing applications, can be expensive and difficult because of the risk of losing intellectual capital buried deep in application systems.
INDEAVR's Application Modernization and Optimization (AMO) Services assist organizations in eliminating unnecessary operating costs and reducing capital spending.
