When Should You Dump Your Legacy I.T.?

Time to scrap your legacy I.T. systems. But how exactly should you go about it?

When Should You Dump Your Legacy I.T.?

Old and outdated applications lie at the heart of many global supply chains. There’s a pressing need to bring them up to date, but companies risk undermining their operations if they attempt a wholesale change. How, then, should they make the decision about which systems to tackle first? What are the criteria for deciding whether a given application has outlived its usefulness? And what’s the role of the cloud in future I.T. deployments for supply-chain management? On this episode, we get answers from Dominick Paul, national vice president of strategic solutions for Sungard Availability Services. He discusses what supply-chain managers should consider before updating their legacy applications, and why it’s important to proceed with caution. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.

Look for the next episode of the podcast, which can be downloaded or streamed, every Friday on the SupplyChainBrain website.
