Application Understanding and APM
A comprehensive understanding of your applications facilitates significant ROI, cost savings and optimization. This understanding and analysis, also referred to as “application mining,” is essential to Application Portfolio Management (APM). It provides the details, mapping, and reporting necessary to facilitate significant improvements in productivity and to identify opportunities for cost savings.
Studies and user experience have proven that the use of tools to provide a thorough understanding of applications can improve programmer productivity more than 20%. An application knowledge base enables organizations to leverage their existing application assets. It is an essential mechanism for improving business agility and increasing efficiencies.
