CIOs, CTOs, software leaders feel overwhelmed by complexity, limited visibility, lack of facts. There is no single integrated view of their application portfolio.

How do you govern the chaos of your sprawling portfolio?

  • What are the best opportunities to reduce costs?
  • How do I modernize applications to be cloud native?
  • Where might I have open source legal or security exposure?
  • Which critical applications are most likely to go down in production?
  • Where can I shift maintenance resources to optimize costs?
  • Am I producing greener software year over year?

As portfolios grow to hundreds or thousands of applications, these questions become virtually impossible to answer with speed, confidence, and accuracy
