Getting Started with APM


Gain IT Portfolio Insights

APM offers enterprise architects and executive-level stakeholders alike the oversight to monitor large-scale IT transformation projects.


Reduce Costs by up to 45%

80% of a company’s IT budget is tied up due to the maintenance of obsolete applications. Application rationalization can lead to cost-savings of more than US $2 million in an enterprise.


Reduce IT Complexity

IT landscapes in enterprises usually contain thousands of interdependent entities. APM systematically untangles this IT complexity by categorizing applications and pinpointing redundancy.
