Essential Business Lenses

Solve your business problems using Essential Business Lenses based on the Essential platform.

Using a number of specialised views and algorithms, Essential can help you identify opportunities in your organisation to support different business outcomes, such as portfolio rationalisation, IT transformation, strategic resource balancing, etc.

Currently we have lenses for Application Portfolio Management and Strategic Resource Optimisation. We will be adding additional lenses, the next being Information and Data Management to be followed by more.

If you're interested in any of these packs or working with us to develop new packs then we'd love to hear from you.
