Only Keep Applications that “Make Sense” for Business
Update or discard the rest


Application rationalization will take the thousands of application installs and whittle them down to just the ones that are required for business. Of those, it will identify the latest versions of the applications or suitable replacements. This process is essential in taking the thousands of unmanaged applications and identifying what application need to be managed.


Application Rationalization provides the following benefits:


  • Determine which applications are used, not just installed
  • Determines which applications need to be updated
  • Allows for an opportunity to standardize on “like” applications
  • Allows for the removal of applications not used to save licensing costs
  • Provides a measure for how much effort it will be to fully optimize the desktop
