Inside this e-book, you will find out some of the most common Application Portfolio Health Mistakes, including:
Having too many applications;
Thinking maintenance is “Once and Done”;
You aren’t investing in security; and
Rushing the process
Micro-service architectures allow systems to be broken down into independent services. They differ from service-oriented architectures (SOAs), which have been around for about a decade for several reasons:
It’s no surprise that organizations are moving their business-critical systems to the cloud because of its availability, speed, and ease-of-use. But how does this effect and organizations ability to properly test and maintain the reliability, security, and performance of those systems?

CAST recently surveyed 500 IT leaders, including 150 CIOs, 125 software architects and 125 application owners, at mid- to large-size organizations regarding their technology objectives and their ability to meet these goals based on the Software Intelligence they have around existing software portfolios.
This research exposes key areas where IT leaders lack Software Intelligence and digs deeper into top challenges as they look to meet the digital imperative while trimming IT costs, improving security and enabling the adoption of emerging technologies.
Demand for IT enabled capabilities is increasing and at the same time there is an expectation that IT becomes more of a strategic business partner.
Budgeting to improve the application landscape sets the tone for how technology leadership is partnering with the rest of the organization and its perceived value to the company.
In this document, we focused on helping our readers by presenting a framework on how to assess the needs for application landscape improvements. Those needs have to be assessed from the business imperatives perspective such as time to market and then tied to IT metrics.
Application maintenance costs can certainly add up over time, especially if you aren’t tracking how much you are spending and where that money is going. Too often, companies will spend without thinking about how much of their budgets goes towards keeping applications running smoothly.
In fact, many companies tend to believe that adding new people to the staff will bolster production and, therefore, mitigate costs. Or they believe that cutting in certain places will offset the costs of application maintenance. In some instances, these approaches can be used as smaller parts of bigger application maintenance plans, but they cannot be the only steps taken.
Older applications are far more likely to impact service continuity in the event of a production failure.
The shift toward Agile development teams might not be helping organizations modernize as quickly as the industry anticipated.
In this white paper, Atos analyzes how an industry leading solution for application code quality and functional size measurement such as CAST impacts application health and quality aspects. We illustrate how a Tier-1 systems integrator can leverage such a tool to deliver the premium quality mandatory for the global digital revolution organizations are going through.
