Modernize core technology

Application Management

We help clients with strategy, organization, sourcing, metrics, performance management, and lean processes.

Application development and maintenance is at the center of delivering IT capabilities to business, and it typically accounts for half of IT costs. We help organizations achieve step-change improvements in cycle time, quality, and cost by addressing demand management, application rationalization, project portfolio management, project value analysis, mega project management, lean/agile development, global sourcing and partner model, performance management, and capability building.

We bring our deep expertise in business strategy, operational transformation, and technology to a range of value creation and enablement opportunities. We are well placed to work with both IT and business and have distinctive capability in defining and supporting the execution of complex transformations. We are vendor agnostic and as such provide independent/objective advice.

Recent examples of our work include helping a large global financial institution rethink its development processes to reduce cycle time and improve efficiency. In addition, we helped a large pharmaceutical company restructure its ADM to improve accountability, clarify responsibility of roles, and improve efficiency by 10 to 15 percent.
