Reduce cost, complexity & optimize resources across your application portfolio
When companies grow, either organically or by acquisition, their IT grows with it. This tends not to be a big issue in growth mode, but it inevitably reaches a tipping point. It costs too much to support all the applications, and risk increases as resources are spread across too many projects. When deciding on which applications to merge/retire, the process becomes a turf battle – influence and opinion becomes the driving factors in these decisions. By the time application health is taken into account, it’s often too late to change course.
CAST Highlight provides the missing piece in the above equation – an objective, unbiased view of the application portfolio. It focuses on application risks, the effort required to maintain & upgrade the application and the technical complexity of the portfolio. Now you can make keep/upgrade/retire decisions based on the evolving health of the application.
