Retire legacy systems

Retirement and Decommissioning

THE SITUATION


Data centers become bloated with old and read-only systems because of data retention, acquisitions or simply because it is not a role within the IT organization.

The result is millions spent in maintenance on old software, hardware that is out of service, a lack of people who understand the technology and solution and a legacy architecture that is full of potential security holes because of out-of-support components.

THE SOLUTION


Archon can connect, analyze, extract and auto-generate search forms on all structured and unstructured data, which can be viewed in an archive. Once the data is secured and controlled, the legacy technology can be retired and the equipment assets can be decommissioned.
