The last decade has seen unprecedented use of technology by all industries as a business enabler. As a result, currently, most organizations spend a significant portion of their IT budgets in maintaining legacy applications or managing multiple applications delivering similar functionalities. Besides this, application failures, downtime, or performance issues have far- reaching repercussions including diminished business performance, significant financial losses, reduced competitiveness, and lowered customer satisfaction.
