We’re all familiar with those legacy applications that no longer add value, but still absorb significant costs. These redundant applications may be left due to mergers and acquisitions, IT consolidation, business modernization, application migration, or moving to a cloud-based or software as a service environment. If you are an EMC customer, many of you may be undertaking projects to consolidate your IT stack to increase efficiency, and moving gradually towards a private or hybrid cloud environment. As you are virtualizing, re-platforming, and migrating your hardware and software, what do you do with the old applications that are left behind?
Some of the data in those applications may have been migrated to the new environment, but you probably don’t want to move everything over unless they will be used. Otherwise, you will be weighing down your new application with unused data that will just slow down response time and take up more space and processing power than needed. You can’t necessarily just purge that data and shut down the old application, because you might still need to retain it for compliance and reporting purposes.
So what can you do to decommission those legacy applications and eliminate costs, while maintaining access to the data? In addition, how do you efficiently leverage your EMC storage tiers, including the private cloud? Come and learn how by attending Informatica’s Solutions Theatre Presentation at EMC World on May 9 from 5:30-6:00 p.m. We’ll be at booth #730 in the Solutions Pavilion if you want to get additional information.
