Rationalize and Modernize Applications for the Digital Enterprise — Future Enterprise Planning Guide

By: Meredith WhalenChief Research Officer, IDC

On-line Presentation


This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation is part of IDC's Future Enterprise Planning Guide series. Each module delivers key overviews, targeted advice, and peer insights to guide users through key parts of the digital transformation (DX) process.

Many organizations are still running rigid, monolithic, antiquated systems that fail to deliver on the digital business needs of today. The legacy portfolio of technology and vendors is often redundant but difficult and costly to upgrade, detracting from other more strategic modernization and DX objectives. The flexibility to address continuous change is a key as organizations build a digital core with AI and advanced analytics capabilities.

The COVID-19 crisis has reinforced the importance of digital transformation and the central role of IT. Legacy or redundant systems represent both a barrier and an opportunity for urgent rationalization in order to save costs while enabling the digital enterprise.

IDC recommends a framework based on capabilities for application modernization. A capabilities approach focuses on what matters for the business. It breaks down business challenges into digestible entities, removing emotional baggage and targeting outcomes.

CIOs and IT leaders will learn success criteria and KPIS in seven critical areas and walk through key steps in establishing a rationalization framework, processes, governance, and priorities. Leaders will find the most effective ways to operationalize the road map and related processes.
