VANCOUVER, March 15, 2012 /CNW/ - Make Technologies®, leading provider of application modernization products and services, will host a webinar on March 22nd with guest speaker Phil Murphy, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc. This webinar will focus on a pressing issue facing enterprises today: Application Inflation.
Much like investing for personal retirement, investments now in managing applications can pay great dividends in the future. Applications are assets that will cost more to maintain next year than they did this year, and application inflation is a valid concern for established companies, according to Mik Lernout, VP of Product Development at Make Technologies. "A lot of organizations have internal applications that they've built and/or maintained over the last couple of years that support their core business processes, and are critical to running the business… Usually there are some core applications that businesses will spend enough money on maintaining, but it's hard to find funds and resources to keep everything up to date."
To combat this growth in costs, a detailed understanding of which applications deserve investment is critical in making decisions that will maximize the business value delivered by a portfolio.
Phil Murphy will present how to identify which types of applications are candidates for replacement, which should be looked at as strategic applications critical to the business, and how to build a roadmap for progress.
Mik Lernout will then offer ways in which Make Technologies' products can assist organizations in all facets of understanding the fundamentals of an application portfolio, ranging from Make Technologies' upcoming SaaS Application Assessment tools, through to its full Assessment and Re-Architecture offerings. "The key is that you want to know what you have, so you know what you can invest in - and what you should invest in - and what you should probably stop investing in."
