UnitedHealth Group

THE SITUATION

UnitedHealth has grown dramatically organically and through acquisition which has caused the need to migrate and retire systems by the 100s.

THE SOLUTION

By using Platform 3 Solutions and Opentext InfoArchive, they have removed a few hundred applications out of their data centers allowing them to consolidate and standardize their process, data and data retention efforts.

THE SITUATION

The evolution of the organization through acquisition and drive to transform their business requires a repeatable ‘decommissioning refinery’. AS/400s, legacy RDBMS systems—the systems get into the 100s. But the need to maintain the data and applicable chain-of-custody is just as paramount in their journey to clean up ‘zombie systems’.

THE SOLUTION

In working with Platform 3 Solutions, Medtronic has implemented their own internal ‘Application Decommissioning’ team that works with internal stake holders to properly evaluate the technical and retention needs of all global technologies.

BMO logo

THE SITUATION

BMO had immediate hard ROI in their ability to bring down systems as the organizations combined the US and Canadian entities. As the resulting data had significant PII and PCI ramifications—InfoArchive was used.

THE SOLUTION

BMO’s first effort with InfoArchive decommissioning a Peoplesoft application resulted in $5M in savings.

THE SITUATION

To better compete, Briggs & Stratton needed to migrate off their legacy Peoplesoft running on UNIX and Oracle database. Running for decades, the organization made a move to cloud services—but the data needed to be maintained for employees, retirees and regulatory/compliance purposes.

THE SOLUTION

The concern in how to maintain data that would not be moved was resolved while also having a flexible way to search and report on the data if the need arose. All the while maintaining global compliance for data that was also flexible enough to change as local legislation and retention requires change for decades to come.

JPMorgan Chase & Co.

THE SITUATION

As one of the largest financial institutions in the world with over $2.5 trillion in assets under management that has grown through both organic and acquisition methods, their data centers have bloated with old systems only running for those read-only moments if the need arises. These old technologies also do not have an effective means to find and place legal holds on data based on modern legal expectations.

THE SOLUTION

The bank has created an internal team whose focus is the assess and retire technology globally using Platform 3 Solution’s Archon product and OpenText InfoArchive as the system-of-record.
