Make legacy application decommissioning part of your digital transformation strategy.
Enhancing and modernizing business systems is now a high priority for many organizations, and budgets are being carefully scrutinized.
As part of any transformation strategy it is important to recognize which applications have served their useful purpose and can be retired, freeing up resources for innovation.
In many cases obsolete systems are kept running just to access historical data, which is often critical for customer service, compliance and operational continuity. By following a controlled legacy application decommissioning process you can maintain easy access to this valuable data while eliminating the costs, risks, and effort of supporting aging software and hardware.
We have a simple process that can help you to:
Identify legacy applications that could potentially be retired
Review the data and decide what your business needs to retain and use
Create an accessible repository for your data, with full security, privacy and information lifecycle management controls applied
