Application portfolios have suffered from a lack of attention by many organizations since as far back as Y2K – the last major landmark IT change event for applications. This is due, in part, to tighter IT budgets over the last decade, and growing demand by the business for new functionality which has forced many organizations to focus their efforts on supporting the business at the expense of IT maintenance.
Furthermore, as organizations continue to add new applications, and application vendors continue to upgrade to keep in step with the newest operating systems, IT departments are faced with serious application sprawl and a growing backlog of out-of-date and often unsupported applications.
