Context[edit | edit source]

  • TBS Report on the State of Aging IT (2010) affirmed that Application Portfolio Management is not consistently practiced GC-wide, thereby supporting the need for a formalized approach for the management of applications.
  • 75% reside in the back-office, many are home-grown, solve the same business needs and do not leverage enterprise opportunities
  • Efficiencies can be realized by consolidating and standardizing back-office applications in order to redirect resources towards the renewal of aging systems & towards government priorities
