Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM)
Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM) is concerned with the connected enterprise. It is a management discipline that enables enterprises to understand themselves and develop a unified enterprise decision analysis and support system which ensures better decision making.
An EPM-based approach helps decision-makers gain a better understanding of how decisions affect all the moving parts that make up the connected enterprise. A portfolio-centric approach provides better visibility across the organization and serves to ensure that decision making is done in a controlled manner within the context of the business and its associated strategies.
EPM is driven by six key Portfolios.
- Goals and Strategy Portfolio
- Investment Portfolio
- Business Architecture Portfolio
- Applications Portfolio
- Technology Portfolio
- Informationt Portfolio

Many businesses across industries face critical challenges, the most common being increased competition, rapidly changing business conditions, perpetual price pressure and increasing regulation.
Economic factors force businesses to seek new methods to remain sustainable and competitive. Kwezi Software Solutions has identified this need and formulated a solution.
In order for enterprises to maintain or improve their position they need to realise their goals and vision. Achieving this requires informed decisions about every facet of their business, from high-level strategy to managing investments in applications, IT Infrastructure and data. Understanding of the enterprises portfolios and relationships with multiple processes (IT and Non-IT) is essential.
Often organisations find it challenging to gain this understanding, mainly due to information from businesses portfolios being structured within silos as they have implemented different management systems to serve a variety of IT functions. Enterprise Portfolio Management frees this information from an organisation's current management systems and allows decision makers to analyse it in a dynamic way. This discipline helps businesses save money, reduce risk and increase business agility.
Gartner defines Portfolio Management as a shift from the practice of using a single integrated application for the support of business requirements to using a collection of applications, technologies and services to create a system that addresses the unique requirements of an organization and leverages best-of-breed opportunities.
Our selection of portfolios examined and analysed have a substantial track record of success. Organising data into these enterprise portfolios does not guarantee an organisation can reduce its costs, speed its entry into new markets or assure its regulatory compliance or business continuity. Rather, the proper analysis of these portfolios helps achieve all these goals by enabling more well-informed decisions that drive business value.
