IT portfolio analysis solutions allow administrative users to unify on-premise and SaaS applications to eliminate redundant systems and improve organization and efficiency. These tools provide a console for mapping an organization's IT landscape. They help users standardize technologies, rationalize use cases, and align service-level agreements. They integrate with data from the applications in use to help IT managers identify an application’s value, reduce technology overlap, and mitigate risks. The tools present the landscape in a workflow or mapping model, which allows users to group technologies by use or department and visualize their entire company’s software and service stack.
