Application Retirement Process (ARP)

At some point, applications are no longer cost effective to maintain, no longer meet the business needs of the users, or introduce too much risk into the enterprise. The Application Retirement Process helps an organization assess their current portfolio of applications with the intent to maximize their effectiveness and minimize their costs. The PPMO provides a customizable framework on how to achieve cost reduction and a maintainable application portfolio. For more information, please see the full ARP services description.
