Although maintaining, sustaining and supporting an Application systems portfolio represents the major portion of an organization’s information technology budget, there are often unique business and technology drivers that require unique solutions. Business or ownership changes, cost reduction programs and hardware and software architecture changes often require unique migrations and conversions to application systems.
Some unique application challenges are:
- Re-platforming – to new hardware or software platforms
- Sun-setting or De-commissioning an application
- Re-patriation – bringing outsourced developments in-house for support
- Outsourcing application development
- Mergers and acquisitions
