LEGACY APPLICATION DECOMMISSIONING

 

The cost-effective alternative to application 'life support'

Most IT departments have at least one business application on 'life support' - being kept alive in case someone in the organization needs to access the information it holds.

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. However, the historical data that the applications contain and the information they provide is critical - for delivering customer service, regulatory compliance, legal discovery and audit.

Macro 4 provides a tried and tested process for decommissioning applications from any platform, quickly and cost effectively. We can extract data from any legacy system and store it in a secure, online archive. Users can access the data easily, either from screens that mimic the original application or in a new format chosen by the business. With the data safely removed, the original application is simply switched off.

Our proven approach can be adopted for decommissioning practically any application - from bespoke mainframe systems to proprietary software, including Enterprise Resource Planning solutions from SAP® and Oracle®.

Benefits of application decommissioning:
  •  Reduce software licensing, maintenance, hardware and data center costs
  •  Mitigate operational risk by reducing reliance on scarce and expensive legacy IT skills
  •  Meet compliance obligations by retaining historical data in a read-only, legal archive
