Enterprise Software Management

IT departments face a difficult challenge for evaluating their effectiveness in the delivery of services to the company. Matching the variety of requirements from users and business sponsors to the functionality of retail products and custom applications--and doing so efficiently and effectively--must start from a solid understanding of the existing Enterprise Solutions Framework.

By examining the existing Enterprise Solutions Framework along multiple dimensions, an IT department can gain a better understanding of how those enterprise solutions are addressing the needs of the enterprise, what gaps may exist, where systems may need rightsizing, and what kind of overlap may be occurring. This information can be vital for operational efficiency planning, capital planning, evaluation of new technologies, or studying the impact of specific changes.
