Strategic portfolio management

Manage your IT portfolio like a serial innovator

Is your IT ready to support ongoing innovation?

When it comes to innovation, being a one-hit wonder won’t cut it. Your modern business requires an IT practice that supports ongoing, sustainable business innovation. However without a streamlined IT portfolio and insights into the impact of change, your IT won’t be agile enough to pivot with the changing times—and it won’t align with business priorities.

Get it wrong, and you’ll be left behind as digital native companies capture new market opportunities.

How can you fine tune your IT landscape to support innovation? Go with the leader in enterprise architecture managementIT planning tools  and IT portfolio management software—Alfabet.

Safeguard IT project investments, ensure business continuity, and increase compliance with regulatory requirements. Reduce change-related system disruptions and cost overruns by knowing how applications and processes are connected. Understand the upstream and downstream implications of change to plan better and aggressively pursue strategic projects.

                    Set the pace for change

Differentiate between the need for speed—whether to support a business innovation, a new market segment or the back office—and determine how fast systems need to change. Group systems as per the needed rate of change and tailor assessment criteria and the resulting handling accordingly.
