Toronto, Canada, April 03, 2013-Futurestate IT today announced the launch of SaaS based AppRX 3.0 dashboard with at glance reports and alerts for application migration, rationalization and portfolio management.
“Businesses on the whole have neglected their application portfolios since Y2K which has lead to application bloat and inflated IT operational cost.” said Alex Topitsch, CEO Futurestate IT. He continued to explain that “AppRx 3.0 provides critical application intelligence that allows enterprises to tackle application bloat and significantly reduce their IT costs for both application migration and ongoing portfolio management.”
According to a survey by Harris Interactive, 82% of organizations polled said that monetary losses due to sprawled, unused, unresponsive or crashed applications cost their business anywhere from $10 thousand – $20 million per year.
AppRx 3.0 enables enterprises to identify redundant, unsupported and unused applications that are candidates for elimination, consolidation and modernization. By rationalizing the applications in their portfolio, enterprises are able to reduce operational costs, accelerate migration to new technology platforms like Windows 7/8, reduce downtime and ensure business productivity.
