Application leaders need to effectively manage and lead their application organizations. This requires strategies that increase the value and effectiveness of a portfolio of applications, while fostering innovation of new application solutions, and empowering the business via citizen developer models and digital product development. Organizations can no longer succeed by operating traditionally, but must shift toward multiple governance, delivery and operating models to propel digital business.

Changing the operating model

With shorter time-to-market requirements, digital business is requiring a change in operating models used by IT organizations. In order to succeed, application leaders need to plan for multiple operating models, and create an API management strategy.

Application portfolio management

IT organizations must master the art of providing timely support for digital business while leveraging their current application portfolios. This requires a gradual modernization of legacy applications into platforms that help transform digital business. How application leaders go about this transformation is critical to their application strategy.

By 2023, 80% of IT organizations will experience radical restructuring and changes in their missions as they embrace the product management operating model.
