Core Activity : Application Value Management

Value – Enhanced Transformational Change

As information technology ages it generally becomes more costly to maintain, and less flexible to operate and integrate. Budget pressures to asset-sweat and minimise operational costs are essentially borrowing from the future and can lead to a maintenance debt that eventually needs to be paid back through reactive, disruptive and expensive end-of-live technology updates.

New technologies create opportunities for both new capabilities and significant operational benefits and costs savings, but – without a systematic approach to value determination and project justification – these often succumb to the aforementioned budget pressures and other ‘priorities’.

The challenge comes in mapping your organisation’s technology needs to what is currently available, and to make the right decisions about what adds most value (where to make investment), what you must tolerate (but at lower costs), what can be migrated or re-platformed (to cloud for example), and what has no further value and should be eliminated (along with its costs).

Application Value Management provides organisations with a clearer and more complete understanding of the value proposition of each application. It structures and evaluates the responses to the important questions: Is the existence of this application aligned with organisation strategy?

Does it meet current functional requirements?

Does its functionality overall with other systems? What does it cost to operate and maintain?
