Struggling with Complexity and Manual Tools

  • Embarking on modernization, beginning with their e-commerce systems and solutions
  • Struggled with complexity and keeping information up-to-date with their manual Excel-based approach to contract lifecycle management
  • No reliable overview of vendors or contracts, struggling with duplicate contracts (e.g., 12 different contracts with 1 vendor)

How Ardoq Helped

  • Quickly imported Excel data using Ardoq's integration to immediately see inventory and lifecycles of COTS and SaaS applications
  • Timeline view allowed them to view dependencies and timing between applications, vendors, and contracts
  • Enabled them to proactively communicate with application owners about changes in lifecycle status
  • Set up an Application Lifecycle Dashboard set to 60 days of end-of-life, allowing application owners to easily see end-of-life markers and take relevant action

Key Outcomes With Ardoq

  • Savings realized by reviewing third-party vendors, identifying and eliminating redundant applications and contracts
  • Quicker insights sharing using data-driven visualizations on lifecycle management, replacing manual work in spreadsheets
  • Improved decision-making, empowered with insights to identify risks and prioritize projects
Next Steps
