Organizations have been struggling with models to classify their applications, such as: ‘Systems of Record vs Engagement’, ‘Bi-modal IT’, ‘Multi-speed IT’, etc. However, these models do not leverage what really matters to business: Risk. This session will introduce a model for classifying applications based on Risk. At one end of the spectrum we have applications that have a high-risk tolerance, and at the other end those with a low risk tolerance. The video discusses how to map practices, tools and team models based on an application’s risk-value profile. The video also presents how to work towards the final goal – achieving the right balance between Innovation and Optimization, based on business need.
