Generally, there are many more applications than strictly necessary because there is insufficient insight into which applications support which business processes with which functions. Too many applications make the ICT landscape unnecessarily complex and result in high, unnecessary costs. Additionally, the quality of the business processes and collaboration between employees are negatively impacted when different applications with the same functionality are used.
When there is no insight into the coherence between applications, databases, and underlying infrastructure, it’s also difficult to determine the impact of changes, making it more complex and expensive to implement changes. Additionally, more disruptions are likely to happen. Gartner posits that 80% of the disruptions are caused by a change.
Finally, how does an organization propose to formulate policy and strategy related to the information provision without insight into the application landscape and the way in which it supports the business operations? Business process management, BPM, forms the key to saving and safeguarding a company’s success.
