The assessment and analysis of transformation or optimization alternatives must include domains 'portfolios' or collections of assets that are not commonly included in the analysis process. Asset types or categories included in a 'portfolio' are sometimes referred to as 'resource units' in strategic sourcing strategy development. Portfolios can include applications, physical or logical servers, network nodes, storage etc. In order to comprehensively assess transformation or optimization alternatives for any organization, varying levels of 'portfolio' analysis must be completed.
One of the most important portfolio domains to analyze is applications. Frequently consuming a majority of and organizations IT resources and expense, application portfolio analysis is a very critical ingredient in developing a strategic blueprint for transformation or optimization alternatives.
Bottom line: The Control Origins team has developed a comprehensive framework to support Portfolio Analysis modeling which can be integrated into discovery, assessment and design processes for transformation or optimization.
