Challenges

Maintaining legacy systems accumulated from past IT projects has increased the burden on IT departments, and also consumes large amounts of time and resources.

IT departments have to deal with many redundant IT assets resulting from mergers and acquisitions or organic growth, and they are unable to downsize them without a precise understanding of their functional coverage. Additionally, IT is experiencing increasing pressure to deliver more value to the business, despite an increase in the complexity of IT systems.

Consequently, many IT departments struggle to rapidly deploy new applications that effectively support changing business needs.
