Congratulations on your new position as CIO. As with all new jobs, it’s time to get your arms around your people, processes and technologies so you know what you have to work with. The problem is, when you start gathering information on your IT portfolio, it seems you get the same answer: “Everything’s great with this application. We have a lot of users and the quality is excellent. We need to invest more in this application – it’s really strategic”. Can you trust that feedback? In the past, you had to. Not anymore.
CAST Highlight gives the CIO an objective view of his/her application portfolio. In a matter of days, the CIO can have fact-based metrics on the quality, cost and complexity of the portfolio they now are responsible for. Integrating this objective view, along with feedback from owners and users, provides the CIO with the perfect amount of visibility. Now you have all the information you need to create innovation, reduce costs, or drive efficiency.
Identify the underlying/inner complexity and adaptability of the application portfolio which might slow down the roadmap execution.
Convey the consolidated technical debt to justify new enterprise standards adoption within the IT roadmap.
Be armed, confident and proactive during the strategic planning exercises.
