Assessment of the Information Systems

To be able to analyze the application rationalization it is necessary to define valuation criteria, assess the business value, license costs, update/upgrade status, etc.

 

Problems and Solutions

Often the Application Rationalization Analysis only evaluates the criticality of the information system, the business and the technological value. Many other criteria are not used while the opinion of decision makers and professionals are seldom taken into account. With the Enterprise Architects approach all relevant details are registered.
