Government application portfolios are plagued with redundant functions and a lack of transparency, which has led to uncontrolled costs and a general reluctance to change anything. This frustrating scenario is primarily why Application Portfolio Management (APM) is considered vital to helping improve agency operations, including the ability to manage cloud services, lower hardware and software costs, and minimize risks.
From our online survey of 112 federal government executives from a variety of defense, intelligence and civilian agencies, it’s clear there’s work to be done to improve APM. For example only 40 percent of respondents said their agency’s application portfolio meshes well with its technology roadmap.
