Whitepaper: Application Modernization and Retirement Strategies

by CapgeminiNov 23, 2010

Legacy Applications Are Eating Away Your IT Budget and Future of Your Company. Take Charge Before It is Too Late.

IT has always been in the forefront of innovation and agility. New applications fuel an organization�s growth and productivity, automate key business processes and provide competitive edge. But inevitably, the cutting-edge systems of yesterday become today�s legacy applications, and the once organized landscape of an �application city� becomes outdated and plagued by application sprawl. The sprawl only continues to grow over time as business acquisitions, poor archiving practices and a lack of internal processes on data retention exacerbate the situation.

Most organizations do not have a clear strategy for retiring legacy applications and continue to spend up to three quarters of their IT budgets just �keeping the lights on� - supporting outdated, redundant and sometimes entirely obsolete systems. This stifles IT�s ability to support evolving demands from the business and cater to the new technology demands required to support customer needs. In the end, business suffers.

Only with a structured, methodical, and building-block approach can IT rebuild its �application city�, revitalize its neighborhoods, streamline its highways, and ensure its future prosperity. Following a clear approach to plan for change, scan the environment and inventory your assets, craft a clever solution which includes application and data retirement, and manage the new, rationalized landscape, you can realize the benefits of a �building the new city in the old city�.
