SAP Legacy Decommissioning
Legacy Migration and Decommissioning in SAP
Companies implement SAP planning to consolidate or decommission their legacy systems. But often a year or more goes by…and they are still there. Keeping legacy systems operational just to maintain historical information is expensive – they are difficult to maintain, take up valuable space and require specialized expertise. Moreover, the company runs the risk that the system won’t be supported as long as you’re required to retain the data. But business and legal compliance requirements make it necessary to ensure efficient access to this information for audit and fiduciary purposes.
Legacy consolidation has to be managed and addressed in the context of an enterprise information lifecycle management (ILM) strategy. Methods for doing this vary from enterprise to enterprise – and even within an organization. Dolphin has developed a Legacy Archive Framework that addresses all of these issues.
