Legacy Application Decommissioning

Tackling the data management challenges of legacy applications

Keeping aging systems running, just to view the data, drains the IT budget for software and hardware maintenance and incurs additional staff and operational costs. But the information provided by the historical data is often critical for delivering customer service, regulatory compliance, legal discovery and audit.

According to Gartner, every dollar invested in digital business innovation through to the end of 2020 and beyond will require enterprises to spend at least three times that to continuously modernize the legacy application portfolio.

Often the hardest part of a decommissioning project is just getting started. We have a simple process that can help you to:

  • Identify the applications that may put your business at risk
  • Consider the data and determine how it is being used – should it be migrated, deleted or archived
  • Make the business case to move your data to a single, secure repository where data is accessible and the necessary security levels can be imposed

Our legacy application decommissioning solutions are based on our Columbus Enterprise Content Management System (CMS), part of the Columbus Enterprise Information (EIM) suite.

We have more than fifteen years’ experience in successfully delivering legacy application decommissioning projects of all sizes, and with specialist experience of working with organizations operating in heavily regulated industries. Our cost-effective and secure solutions can be utilized to retain data from any business application that needs to be retired – helping companies to tackle the data management challenges of legacy applications.
