The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Legacy Decommissioning specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Legacy Decommissioning Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 927 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Legacy Decommissioning improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 927 standard requirements:

  1. The process of conducting a data migration involves access to both the legacy source and the target source.æ The target source must be configured according to requirements.æ If youre using a contractor and provided that the contractor is under strict confidentiality, do you permit the contractor to house copies of your source data during the implementation?

  2. If the path forward waits until a new generation of devices essentially replaces an old generation of devices which could be somewhere between 5 and 15 years, what does the path forward look like for the legacy devices and their software maintenance?

  3. Hybrid clouds have unique security requirements that legacy security cannot meet. Since traditional security tools provide limited visibility into cloud infrastructure, how are you going to protect what you can not see?

  4. When you look for new applications to meet your business needs - requirements are defined, software is evaluated, software selected, software configuration begins. But what about the data, how is this managed?

  5. What incentives might your organization offer to manufacturers to make a business case to provide equipment and labor at no cost to your organization for each of the proof of concept validation sites?

  6. Some systems are outdated to the point where it looses its business value. In some cases the legacy system never gets a modernization. Why is this, and when is the correct time to modernize?

  7. Many organizations maintain their current legacy systems, believing in the old saying, If it is not broken, why fix it. Do you know where in your organization this thinking makes sense?

  8. Are you looking at the evolution of a large legacy system, bringing in turn many hidden assumptions regarding the architecture, or the creation of a new system with fewer constraints?

  9. Does the migration software support non-disruptive data migration (i.e. legacy application continues to operate during the migration) if this is a requirement of the migration?

  10. Are the migration costs associated with a migration to the cloud included in a new system/application investment, the legacy investment, or in a separate migration investment?
