Why should you consider legacy system decommissioning? Over time, organisations accumulate many legacy systems that are rarely accessed but contain huge amounts of data. These systems must be kept and maintained due to legal regulations or because some of the data still has business value.
Holding this data doesn’t benefit the bottom line, but comes at an enormous cost, both in terms of running expenses and a data footprint that makes moving to new cloud systems very expensive.
Decommissioning can add significant value in scenarios such as mergers and acquisitions, divestments or moving to the cloud to name a few.
