IDC PeerScape: Lessons Learned from Managing the Application Portfolio for Digital Transformation

This IDC PeerScape explores how chief information officers (CIOs) are streamlining their application portfolios — for both on-premise and cloud-based software — as part of their journey to the digital enterprise. Leading-edge CIOs have seen that they must use step-by-step methods for making application rationalization and modernization a sustained capability, not just a one-time effort."Enforcing software standards won't win any popularity contests, but smart CIOs are taming their application sprawl to produce more agile businesses and free up resources for innovation," says Mitch Betts, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP).
