Application Portfolio Consolidation Services

In a rapidly evolving digital world, the complexity and cost of software and cloud estates can easily get out of hand if left unchecked. Organisations often end up with an environment that can include a mixture of applications based on commercial off-the-shelf software, freeware, open-source, enterprise applications and custom-developed software.

The complexity of an IT estate can rapidly increase as software continues to be purchased directly from publishers or via resellers, and applications are developed in-house by the business itself. However, this is only part of the story. “Shadow IT” often adds significantly to risk exposure and the level of hidden costs incurred.

Insight, optimisation & modernisation

SoftwareOne’s Application Portfolio Consolidation service aims to minimise technical debt, complexity and operational risk within an organisation’s IT estate through functionality consolidation, as well as application modernisation and cloud migration. We support our clients by maturing their ITAM capability, developing their governance, organisation, processes and offer technological support that ensures they keep their portfolio of assets at an optimum level long term.
