For more than 30 years the IT portfolios of large organizations have been expanding as a result of increasing business requirements and the eruption of new technologies. With an ever growing focus on corporate globalization, CIOs face even more complex challenges to rationalize their IT portfolio. Numerous applications are redundant, misused or even obsolete. Others are meant to be identical and are specifically configured or deployed.
