How IT Portfolio Management helps your IT department to deliver business value

IT portfolio management improves business performance by helping you determine which applications serve your company best and by providing the information you need to answer vital questions. 

Once you know the business value, cost, technical efficiency, performance and risk of each IT asset, you can create a roadmap that shows you how to rationalize your IT system, add and retire technologies at the right time, avoid technology obsolescence, eliminate costly redundancies, and gain a competitive edge.

IT rationalization is the prerequisite to take on strategic planning initiatives that can help define new and innovative business projects to help your business grow.
