Why decommission your legacy IT systems?

It’s inevitable that over time, most organisations will accumulate vast amounts of data that is held in disparate legacy systems. Typically rarely accessed, these systems often contain large volumes of data, which needs to be retained for its business value and to comply with tax, audit and data privacy regulations.

Professionally System decommissioning these old systems is the only way to progress towards digital transformation. It ensures that access to data, reports, and documents can be retained and it removes the expense of maintaining and upgrading legacy systems. Simplifying your overall IT system landscape is the single most cost-effective way to reduce long-term administration and maintenance costs. Due to current data privacy penalties, just maintaining legacy systems is not an option. Decommissioning is the only viable solution.

Minimise risks

  • Avoid the business risks of non-compliance. Legal regulations and GDPR data privacy requirements are frequently not enforced on old systems.
  • Avoid the high costs of maintaining an obsolete architecture. Legacy systems require system updates and maintenance, plus the licensing costs of legacy ERP systems can be substantial.
  • Avoid draining internal resources. Experts who understand how to manage legacy software can be hard to find. If you are migrating to SAP S/4HANA or another ERP, focus your efforts on higher value, digital transformation initiatives instead.
  • Avoid non-compliance during mergers and acquisitions. Secure continued access to data and documents stored in disparate applications within acquired companies.
