Application Profile (Definition)

The Application Profile is a standalone document which is used as input for other activities in the ICT planning process. It contains the results of the applications planning activities conducted as part of the ICT strategic planning process. These are summarised into a profile of all significant applications in use in the organisation within the scope of the planning project (the Application Portfolio) and the extent of their value and level of support for the core business of the organisation’s work units. The Application Profile includes assessments of how well applications are managed and identifies initiatives to address any strategic and operational gaps which become apparent. These initiatives may include increased investment in some areas and reduced investment in others, taking into consideration the alignment of the current portfolio to the business and strategic direction, the risk inherent in the portfolio and the potential of the portfolio to contribute to planned future outcomes. The profile summarises the previous information collection and analysis into a document which can be presented back to the business for consideration and validation. The Application Profile is used as input into the preparation of the ICT Program of Work for the organisation.
