What is Technology Debt and Why is it Important?

Technology debt is defined by Platform 3 Solutions as the current monetary and opportunity cost tied to existing technology that puts the business at risk or contributes to the operational complexities associated with outdated applications, subscriptions, maintenance, processes, and human capital required to sustain them.

Platform 3 assesses an organization’s technology debt to create an ROI cost savings model, then uses tools like Archon to efficiently migrate and archive data from legacy systems to new technologies. Our revolutionary tools and services create a streamlined application decommissioning process, saving companies time and money, and making Platform 3 Solutions a leader in technology debt reduction.

Phase One

Platform 3 Technology Debt Score™ and
Platform 3 ROI Assessment™

We use the Platform 3 Technology Debt Score™, a proprietary tool that monetizes all aspects of the debt and provide a “transformation investment” with a defendable ROI to fund innovation. This helps clients understand the risk vs. benefit and cost vs. savings of moving forward or doing nothing.

Phase Two

Platform 3 Roadmap to Action™

  • Archive or Retain data/information for compliance and governance
  • Migrate (data/information) to new platform or application
  • Remove (retire, decommission, and deconstruct) technology applications and infrastructure to close the technology lifecycle loop
  • Defensively Delete data/information that no longer has business value or poses potential risk

A cross-functional assessment process to Identify, Analyze, Categorize
and Prioritize key values to measure true technology debt.
