Increasingly, enterprises are turning to Strategic Portfolio Management (SPM) as a technique to decide which components of the business should be invested in to deliver their strategic goals.
SPM considers the business as a set of portfolios – such as applications, technologies and projects to help stakeholders decide where best to focus the organisation’s finite resources in order to meet strategic objectives, rationalise costs, reduce risk, and increase operational productivity.
Successful Application Portfolio Management (APM) requires an inventory of your company’s applications together with metrics to understand their fit and value to the business.
iServer’s SPM dashboards deliver a complete picture of your application portfolio out-of-the-box, together with insights into the dependencies between applications, the technology landscape, business capabilities and strategy.
