It's time to retire legacy applications

For many organizations, retiring legacy applications has become imperative for several reasons. First, these outdated systems are expensive to maintain. They also present a significant risk–even more so with increasing data regulations and security threats.

Read the Gartner report How to Address Data Retention and Application Retirement to learn how to:

  • Identify the scenarios to keep or replace legacy applications.
  • Implement the right policies, processes and technology for decommissioning.
  • Integrate GDPR responsiveness into application retirement planning.

By 2022, 80% of organizations affected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that do not engage in application retirement will be fined for non-compliance.1

While organizations need to eliminate the burden of managing dated legacy systems, they still need to retain and access all the valuable data within them in a secure, compliant manner. How can organizations achieve this efficiently and cost-effectively? By ingesting and storing the data with OpenText™ InfoArchive, a centralized, secure and scalable archive solution.
