Legacy IT and Decommissioning

Legacy IT tends to be characterised by “old” applications, but ageing, poorly maintained and out of control infrastructure is as much a part of the issue. Reducing legacy IT improves organisational agility, releases capital for re-investment in more advanced capability, improves performance and reduces security risk.

How the setup or migration service works
Decommission – reduce costs and risks:
- Iterative at scale IT decommissioning. Remove redundant equipment as soon as possible
- Asset register accuracy refined in-flight. What is needed and should or should not be paid for
- Capability delivery map revealed. How services are actually delivered

Improve capability delivery – increase agility, security and reliability:
- Upgrade or transform older at-risk systems. Address expensive unsupported hardware, operating systems and applications
- Virtualise old hardware. If upgrading is not an option seek to virtualise to save hardware costs
- Optimise application configurations. Refreshed systems reconfigured to improve performance

Improve architecture – optimise future technology use:
- Consolidate architecture to a smaller footprint. Fewer systems require fewer resources
- Optimise infrastructure and security configurations. Tailor technology to meet capability needs
- Improve how technology is applied for the business. Stop fire-fighting and start planning
- Move architectural principles closer to business needs. Achieve business outcomes

New ways of working
- Move to agile flexible delivery and support models
- Deliver value early
- Adapt resource management to be self-organising
- Do not allow tactical decisions to shred technology strategy

We are subject matter experts, adept at cloud related transformation and delivery. Where we do not have all of the skills required for a requirement, we either partner with an organisation that does (with the client's consent) or will advise from the outset that we are unable to accept a task.

Support levels
Level 1 is a general support function to capture the nature of the query or concern and ensure it is relayed to the appropriate person to address.
Level 2 the lead engagement manager for the client will aim to communicate directly with the enquirer and will normally be on-site on a regular basis.
Level 3 requires a director or partner to address a query or concern where it has not been possible for the lead engagement manager to do so.
There is no additional charge for these support levels.
