ASL® Introduction

Effective and Efficient Applications Portfolio Management

Information management systems have been developed, managed and maintained for decades. Every application management organization has developed its own methods over the years, but so far little serious has been made to maintain and control the application management processes.

Fortunately in the past years the tide is turning. ASL® has been developed as a public domain framework to support professional application management in order for the business to maximize its value. ASL® helps organizations aligning their applications portfolio at all three levels: strategic, tactical and operational.


 To introduce the ASL® framework
 To provide a structured approach to manage applications
 To provide a common language to all application management stakeholders
 To align application management with strategic, tactical and operational business objectives
 To provide practical advice on how to implement application management
