Fighting Application Inflation: Maintaining a Lean APM Portfolio to be Featured Topic in Upcoming Webinar
(Canada Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge)
VANCOUVER, March 15, 2012 /CNW/ - Make Technologies®, leading provider of application modernization products and services,
will host a webinar on March 22nd with guest speaker Phil Murphy,
Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc. This webinar will focus
on a pressing issue facing enterprises today: Application Inflation.
Much like investing for personal retirement, investments now in managing
applications can pay great dividends in the future. Applications are
assets that will cost more to maintain next year than they did this
year, and application inflation is a valid concern for established
companies, according to Mik Lernout, VP of Product Development at Make
Technologies. "A lot of organizations have internal applications that
they've built and/or maintained over the last couple of years that
support their core business processes, and are critical to running the
business… Usually there are some core applications that businesses will
spend enough money on maintaining, but it's hard to find funds and
resources to keep everything up to date."
To combat this growth in costs, a detailed understanding of which
applications deserve investment is critical in making decisions that
will maximize the business value delivered by a portfolio.
Phil Murphy will present how to identify which types of applications are
candidates for replacement, which should be looked at as strategic
applications critical to the business, and how to build a roadmap for
Mik Lernout will then offer ways in which Make Technologies' products
can assist organizations in all facets of understanding the
fundamentals of an application portfolio, ranging from Make
Technologies' upcoming SaaS Application Assessment tools, through to
its full Assessment and Re-Architecture offerings. "The key is that you
want to know what you have, so you know what you can invest in - and
what you should invest in - and what you should probably stop investing
