Reducing IT Spend by Decommissioning Legacy Systems

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Legacy System decommissioning and archiving are parts of the ERP migration process that often get lost in the shadow of a new system deployment, when most people involved in the implementation focus on the potential benefits that the new environment will bring or much more ‘innovative’ projects.

However, by decommissioning cost intensive systems and archiving them compliantly ROI is almost immediate, releasing legacy system costs to be used for further decommissioning or for others projects such as a migration to HANA. Decommissioned legacy systems are stored in a cheaper tiered storage or cloud, and kept readily available for any Audit or reporting requirements assisting legislation requirements as read only.
