Organizations rely on a myriad of enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), custom and packaged applications to collect and manage the critical business information that drives daily operations. As the business evolves, organizations often face the need to update older technology, consolidate and decommission applications, and simplify the supporting IT infrastructure to eliminate redundancy and lower costs. As a recommended best practice, organizations need to evaluate application portfolios regularly to determine whether their investment is delivering maximum business value. Weighing the costs and benefits of each application can help when deciding which applications should be maintained, and which applications should be upgraded, replaced, consolidated or decommissioned.

This white paper explains how an information governance strategy that includes the database archiving capabilities of the IBM ®InfoSphere™ Optim™ Data GrowthSolution can help increase the business value of your enterprise applications and simplify your IT infrastructure to garner significant savings.
