A decision support system to aid in charting a strategic direction.
Steven Wright, the mono-toned and rather offbeat comedian of the 1990’s, used to tell this joke: “I have an existential map. It has ‘You are here!’ written all over it.”
CIOs and IT Directors live in a less existential world. They can’t afford to just live in the moment and let their applications be “here,” and “here,” and “here” without a solid reason. More importantly, at any given moment, they may require detailed information about their applications in order to chart a new direction (or re-direction) to meet dynamic business needs.
