Technology Rationalization

Today, businesses are riddled with legacy processes and technologies as a result of acquisitions, organizational change and/or technology evolution. Existing legacy systems and processes need modernization to meet new demands in the market place or extend their useful life. Moving from a current to modernized state is a significant and complex undertaking. Successful companies seek paths to allow the modernization effort to progress more fluidly and efficiently in order to contain costs, reduce risk and gain business benefits during the modernization process.

But where do you start when you have a large library of products, complex business operations and/or a large portfolio of IT platforms?

You start by rationalizing your portfolio to understand how products, processes and technology associate to and drive your business. NEOS recommends beginning by organizing your assets into large segments based on the function and benefit to the business so you can see across the enterprise, find commonalities and plan a comprehensive enterprise program to simplify the portfolio and ensure alignment to the business.

NEOS can combine its own proven, adaptable methods for rationalizing and simplifying large portfolios of business products, processes or technology. These methods have been used in many different industries and can mold to your particular situation.
