Risk Indicators

Organizations which ponder questions like these may benefit from an iMC Application Rationalization engagement…

  • Do we have an accurate inventory of our infrastructure assets?
  • Do we know where each application resides (servers, databases, enterprise software, etc.)
  • Do we fully understand what each application costs to operate?
  • Are we paying to support applications or infrastructure we don’t need?
  • What is the support status of our current application inventory?
