Event Details

Learn about EA & IT Portfolio Management Best Practices supported by Alfabet

Is your portfolio of applications and technologies extremely large, complex and growing daily? Do you have high operations costs that devour innovation funds? Does IT complexity hinder agility in quickly delivering to business demands?

Without a single view across *all* portfolios – applications & technologies, information & data, capabilities & processes, programs & projects – you will not be able to significantly reduce the cost of your IT portfolio to better fund innovation and streamline the portfolio to deliver faster on business demands. With information being disseminated across disparate silos, ranging from your ERP and financial systems to your CMDB and project management tools, the result is that you are sailing blind.

This is where Alfabet comes into play. Alfabet integrates multiple portfolio viewpoints in order to serve as a control tower for CIO Offices, Enterprise Architects, PMO and Controllers alike to support them in decision making. Alfabet takes a data-driven and outcome-oriented approach on enterprise architecture by answering concrete business questions such as: “How can I rationalize my application landscape?”, “How can I reduce my OPEX”, and “How can I move to cloud?”.

In its next virtual theme session on Thursday 16th September, the Dutch ARIS & Alfabet User Group “AGNL” would like to introduce this unique approach to its members and shed a different light on enterprise architecture. You are kindly invited to join!
