'Reducing complexity' is a reason frequently given by organizations when instigating an application rationalization initiative. However, complexity can be challenging to define and measure in all but subjective terms. For many organizations embarking on rationalization, the primary focus is the reduction or elimination of complexity. Complexity is often associated with higher costs and reduced adaptability or agility. However, where the value of complexity to the organization is high (due to the competitive advantage or ability to maintain/defend a market position and brand equity), these may be prices worth paying. EAs play a critical role in defining those areas where complexity can add value and what the trade-offs are. This enables organizations to take a more rounded view of complexity in the context of application rationalization.
