The first step to take before hitting your application portfolio is to set a goal and know your objective. Virtually every employee, process and transaction depends on an overly complex business application environment that has grown organically or through M&A over the past few decades with no overarching strategy. This ever-growing complexity has led to sky-rocketing maintenance costs with little to no room left for innovation and growth initiatives. In order to stay competitive, you need to be completely aligned with the business.

The biggest single business issue that many IT organizations wrestle with is trying to contain the size of the applications portfolio they are asked to manage. Many organizations simply fail to take a hard look at which applications can be retired and, as a result, the cost of the IT infrastructure needed to support all those applications spirals out of control. Here are some tips from Hewlett-Packard about how to rationally clean up the applications portfolio.
