Solution

We guided our client through the Peru repeatable rationalisation process as follows:

Undertook an overall validation and analysis of the Application Portfolio

Prioritised quick win decommissioning opportunities based on the value of identified applications to the business and compatibility with technical policy

Produced the business case for change including a comprehensive list of applications to eliminate, invest in or maintain together with cost and benefit profiles

Outcome

Set up and directed the global rationalisation delivery programme

  • Set up and directed the global rationalisation delivery programme commencing with Pilot countries and then helped to roll out our “decommissioning tool-kit” around the world
  • Repeatable decommissioning process and tooling which enabled the client to become self-sufficient in its application retirement efforts
  • Early applications and server “quick win” elimination successes which helped to overcome resistance to change
