Application Portfolio ManagementAs a business itself, Objectstream recognizes the importance of strategic alignment of IT with business. Application Portfolio Management (APM) is an on-going and managed service, which ensures IT investments always deliver the required business value. APM aids in legacy obsolescence, increased ROI through portfolio optimization driven by strategic alignment, measuring IT investments and restructuring IT investments for better results. Most businesses have their IT implementations as technology-based solutions, while Objectstream's recommendations will be driven by your business portfolio.
Objectstream has proven experience in conducting analysis of portfolio data to align application inventory with business priorities. Our consultants are experienced in developing product roadmaps and associated business processes that ensure the validity and integrity of your portfolio data. These processes ensure accuracy of the portfolio data and increase reliability on the portfolio so that your management can comfortably make informed decisions.
Our consultants will provide the guidance and support to help mature your APM practice and also setup governance for your application portfolio. Objectstream's consultants base their decisions on scientific reasoning and statistical data analysis. They are experienced in gathering such data/metrics that aid in demonstrating, quantifying and measuring the portfolio. Objectstream's APM consulting practices adhere to Gartner Level 3 APM Maturity.

We Are "Content Rich" Project Managers.

We take special pride in staffing our firm with some of the best, brightest, most seasoned Project Managers the IT industry has to offer.

The successful Project Manager must identify and mitigate these risks, appreciating and properly handling the sensitive social nature of project development and execution.
