Across Astral’s customer base the key drivers of Application Rationalisation projects are mergers, takeovers or the centralisation of business units that often have a major impact on the application landscape of the organisations involved. From a content management perspective this can also be driven by the complexity of multiple applications, high cost of maintaining multiple licenses and maintaining support of software and hardware platforms.

Business Challenges

Application rationalisation are often large programs that are driven by application portfolio management, with the emphasis on ensuring that the business retains the right functionality and possibilities. The correct approach and use of software make these large programs more manageable and controllable.

The complexity of rationalising is in determining the size of the project. In addition to an inventory from users and processes, it is essential to analyse the data and content of the applications. Using a standard migration approach and standard extraction connectors across all target repositories ensures that data and content can be quickly transferred to a central environment. It is then possible to quickly gain insight into the quantity, and quality of the data from the various applications so that a well researched migration plan can be planned.

Business Solution

Once all the content and data are identified, it is then important to transfer the selected data and content to the chosen content management application. This is executed following a standard migration approach, with agreed business rules determining which data is or is not included as part of the migration. Through transformation, the data is made suitable for the new data model and value can be added through enrichment techniques.

Business Benefits

In addition to efficiency in the use of the applications other benefits include:

  • Reduced risk of data breaches.
  • Reduction in the cost of licenses.
  • Reduction in cost of management support and hardware.
