End Dependence on Costly Legacy Applications and Boost Data Compliance
Many organizations spend more than 70% of their IT budget to maintain legacy applications in “read-only” mode, largely due to data retention and compliance requirements.
Application decommissioning is the process of moving data off of costly and outdated applications to a single, future-proof, and cost-effective repository that provides a secure and regulatory-compliant tool for accessing legacy data.
We use a rigorous process to analyze your application portfolio and identify the best candidates for decommissioning, based on a combination of their value to the business, the savings that can be achieved, and the cost to retire them. The Solution uses the ETL Acceleration Suite by Flatirons to extract data from difficult legacy environments and store it in an accessible and fully compliant central repository. This includes maintaining a full chain-of-custody audit trail of the data as it’s extracted and transformed, and maintaining all security, privacy, retention, and other compliance rules in the central repository.
The potential in IT savings, data compliance improvements, and integration with Big Data analytics are three primary benefits of Application Decommissioning for InfoArchive. What’s more, most projects begin with a proof of concept that delivers tangible ROI, often in only a matter of months.
Application Decommissioning with InfoArchive helps simplify data compliance and strengthen your ability to comply with data regulations. InfoArchive uses active archiving to keep data accessible and fully compliant, and its rich set of security, privacy, and data retention rules can be customized to meet or exceed the level of legal and regulatory compliance exhibited by legacy applications.
The ETL Acceleration Suite is a set of tools that streamline the extraction, transformation, and load (ETL) processes for moving data from legacy applications to the InfoArchive platform—speeding up the retirement of outdated, unsupported legacy applications and ensuring accuracy and integrity of legacy data so you can lower application retirement project costs and achieve greater ROI.
Hosted Application Decommissioning delivers security equal to on-premise deployments, scalability to meet current and future archiving needs, and high availability with built-in redundancy. Consider deploying your application decommissioning solution through the cloud to get started faster, achieve lower total cost of ownership, and realize greater ROI.
Two common questions about application decommissioning are “How much does it cost?” and “How long does it take?”
There are a number of factors that go into both answers.
Here are a few tips to help you get a sense of the cost for retiring an outdated system as well as what goes into determining a project timeline.
