In today’s business world, where success is defined by the speed of innovation, building the right IT portfolio is more vital than ever.
Yet managing your IT to make the most of this global tech-celeration isn’t easy. Often, in a scramble to keep pace with the competition, companies are prone to rushed and ill-informed decisions. This leads to unnecessary IT spending, bloated application landscapes, and an inability to deliver on business strategy.
At Software AG, we believe a strategic portfolio management approach is the key to aligning your IT with business. With Alfabet, our market-leading enterprise architecture, IT portfolio management, and strategic IT planning solution, you’ll understand when, where, how, and why to make changes to your IT portfolio. You’ll be able to spend your money more wisely, more effectively manage risk, and accelerate your innovation strategy.
A strategic portfolio management solution is like a GPS: it guides you to your destination of strategic change by showing you which roads to take–connecting portfolios across your enterprise and advising on potential obstacles for more informed decisions you can trust.
With the ability to capture the business architecture–business strategy, business capabilities and the business and operating models—and how it relates to the project portfolio, you can see where there are gaps in IT support for the business strategy and where CapEx is being wasted on non-strategic or value-less projects and product development. With SPM’s demand management capability, you can map demands to as-is and to-be architecture, detect potential conflicts—and mitigate risk—long before the start of any project. And with financial planning capabilities, you’ll have the foresight to ensure your investments make economic sense—avoiding wasteful spending and keeping your IT laser-focused on supporting your business strategy.
