Map and streamline application lifecycle management


IT leaders are under pressure to embrace new technologies including mobile, social, cloud and big data. But maintaining and supporting legacy applications can consume the lion's share of budget and resources. The road towards successfully taking control of this situation begins with Application Portfolio Management (APM). 

APM practitioners need strategies to tackle complex and expanding portfolios of applications — as well as legacy applications — and more frequent deployment cycles.

ABACUS allows your organization to provide business-focused APM.  In capturing, analyzing and visualizing the complete business and technology architecture, ABACUS is extremely well-suited to APM in the age of customer-focused digital transformation.

ABACUS users gain a broad understanding of the role of each application in the business. Map IT and business infrastructures at the same time and quickly identify redundancies and trends needed to make decisions.

And by linking policies, principles and standards to applications, executives can gain visibility of compliance from across multiple portfolios. A variety of charts and dashboards can be created to surface this information for stakeholders.
