Why Read This Report

Today's economic climate demands that applications professionals do more with less: more new development, more maintenance, more integration, and more technology change to support wild fluctuations in the pace of business change. A tall order in good economic times, these demands border on impossible as the economy falters and IT budgets tighten. Applications professionals need productivity gains for the plethora of day-to-day activities: scoping the impact of proposed changes quickly, completely, and accurately; ensuring the quality of application changes; proving adherence to functional and compliance requirements; right-sizing testing efforts; and maintaining ongoing stores of application knowledge to enable greater agility. Application mining tools increase productivity across a wide range of these activities, especially against large bases of custom-developed applications.
