IT 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.

                IT’s easier without complexity

Digitalization demands change—and lots of it—with awesome innovations that leverage the cloud, the Internet of Things, bimodal IT, agile development and DevOps. Be bold on change when you understand the impact from every angle with Alfabet for IT software portfolio management.

                    Be business-like on IT change

Run IT like a business by evaluating assets, returns and risks to make smart investment, divestment and hold decisions. Deliver on key initiatives to support core business strategies—company acquisitions, operations, globalization, business model transformation and compliance. Respond successfully to digitalization challenges: new technologies, new business channels and new security threats.

                    See how much there is to know

Estimate the impact everywhere with “whole-view management”—know interdependencies between portfolios for applications, technologies, projects, services and APIs. Determine what will be affected by any given project or change to reduce project risk and be able to take on more projects.

                    Make your IT portfolio agile

Increase your portfolio of IT assets' agility in implementing business initiatives faster, thus improving time-to-market for new business products. Streamline portfolios and use Agile portfolio and feature management capabilities to leverage Agile delivery methods and align delivery to business and IT strategy.

                    Lower project, data & application risk

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.
