  • Simplify Application Modernization with Portfolio Management Simplify Application Modernization with Portfolio Management Dave Guevara, Global Enterprise Strategy & Architecture Portfolio Solutions Leader, Ciber Recorded: May 17 2016 52 mins
    Today, business is fast-paced with more moving parts than ever before. Companies that adapt their systems quickly in responding to business needs have a distinct competitive advantage. But organizations that are saddled with legacy systems not only struggle to keep up, but they’re also likely to find themselves on the fringe of relevance. Learn how to extend CA PPM to solve these complex modernization challenges.

    Which of these modernization challenges are you dealing with now?

    •Modernization initiatives exist for our major systems, but we need “the plan” for what else must change too.

    •Our systems are highly customized so we are “stuck”! How do we get unstuck without disrupting the business and get to our target state?

    •There are a few hundred applications, many are too expensive to maintain and take too long to change, but how?

    •Groups of large applications (e.g. mainframe, ERP, custom suites) need to be modernized to meet current business needs, but big bang will take too long, cost too much and “temporary” business solutions will just keep adding to today’s complexity and cost.

    •Our best talent, who should be innovating, are stuck maintaining what we have and fixing it as best they can to meet business needs.

    Join us for a BrightTalk webinar on Tuesday, May 17th at 10am PT where CA’s alliance partner Ciber will discuss how organizations are using portfolio management methods to solve these difficult and complex application modernization and rationalization challenges.
