  • Have mature features and stable well defined requirements
  • are standardized, repetitive, well segmented and documented
  • Do not involve secure or sensitive data
  • Large enough to produce substantial benefits
  • have low added value or labor intensive
  • The application/process is stable with a reasonable expected life time
