Rationalizing enterprise applications

IDC's Digital Transformation (DX) Executive Sentiment Survey shows that 39% of organizations worldwide have increased spending in enterprise applications in response to DX projects. A significant focus is being placed on ERP rationalization and modernization, as organizations are looking at building a digital core with AI, machine learning, and advanced analytics capabilities. At the same time, the need for intelligence will continue to drive adoption of these systems into the cloud, as machine learning and advanced analytics require cloud computing capabilities that have the scalability and elasticity to cope with these workloads.

What: This module will help IT leaders implement a rationalization roadmap and operationalize the rationalization process, rather than completing the exercise and forgetting the discipline. You’ll learn the most effective ways to make the rationalization process part of normal operations, with dedicated resources, processes, and tools. Insights include ways to map out the adoption path in strategic waves and the most effective ways to approach talent changes, workflows and vendor evaluations.

Why: To be effective in today's fast-changing economic environment, it is essential to operationalize the rationalization process.

How: Implementing the modernization of your applications for the digital enterprise includes the following steps:

  • Establish the metrics that measure the effectiveness of your application rationalization program
