Application Modernization Is Next Cost-Containment Play

According to a survey, many IT organizations are starting to turn their attention toward application modernization.

Whether you run the IT department for a large corporation or a small-to-medium business (SMB), Info-Tech Research Group knows that keeping track of the state of the software installed on all company workstations can be very difficult. Regular software maintenance often falls by the wayside in the rush to keep development chugging along. Unfortunately, this means that software maintenance issues get the short shrift until a critical failure occurs.


Info-Tech contributed a self-assessment worksheet to the Knowledge Network that tracks and organizes maintenance-plan information regarding software installed across the enterprise. It provides a "quick way to self-assess specific problem areas in software maintenance" by asking questions relating to potential problem areas. Use your responses to determine where maintenance issues could occur so you can avoid a costly, show-stopping software failure.
