Executive Summary: This white paper provides IT decision makers with a deeper understanding of the distinct benefits of application portfolio management (APM) and enterprise architecture (EA) and how they can be used together to enhance IT governance.

Today, CIOs must cope with increasing pressure to reduce IT costs. We want to help them understand:

  • How both APM and EA can help CIOs meet today’s challenges
  • The best practices for implementing APM and EA as complementary approaches with discrete benefits

Business globalization has made optimizing legacy IT resources almost as important as ensuring that the initial architecture is robust. When it comes to finding an approach that addresses both architecture and deployment, IT decision makers can look to other enterprise resource managers for inspiration – functions like HR and finance have successfully overcome this challenge by establishing well-defined rules and best practices and taking advantage of appropriate tools and industry standards.

This white paper shows the value that an integrated portfolio management approach – an essential building block of modern governance – can bring to an organization.
