Legacy System Support

Legacy systems often make up a vital part of a company’s IT infrastructure. These systems have generally been in place for many years and maybe used well passed the vendor-supported software and hardware lifetime. Legacy systems therefore present a complex strategic problem for IT managers. Indeed, this infrastructure is often used in mission critical processes essential to their businesses.

Legacy technologies continue to persist due to their tried and tested nature, stability and ability to meet user demands. In addition the cost of replacement and the inherent difficulties raised during migrating systems that require continual availability pose significant obstacles. Even when they have been replaced, legacy systems often remain as read-only repositories holding essential customer data.

It is safe to say that these systems will continue to play an important role in many organisations for the foreseeable future. However significant challenges arise in legacy system support and maintenance, as technological development and retirement leaves fewer and fewer people with the required skills.
