Implementing Application Portfolio Management (APM) does not have to be an all or nothing endeavor. In fact, it makes the most sense for enterprises just beginning to undertake APM to get a quick start by taking it on in smaller pieces. This is particularly true when cash and resources might not be available to implement a complete APM solution.
This research note will cover the following aspects of getting started with APM:
- Dividing the application portfolio into logical domains.
- Using the resources available to realize maximum benefits.
- Using simple starter tools and financial analysis to build a portfolio.
By tackling an APM implementation in pieces, enterprises can start to realize the benefits without breaking the bank.
