STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

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 993 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 Software improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 993 standard requirements:

  1. How do you determine when to modernize your systems from legacy database software to data platforms built from the ground up to support digital, mobile, and cloud applications that run everywhere?

  2. How do you decouple the business functionality from your legacy applications that are still needed (that can be re-use) intelligently, efficiently and with as little risk as possible?

  3. How do you support the needs of legacy, business critical applications, and provide flexible infrastructure to support new virtual machine-based applications or a migration to SaaS?

  4. Does it still make sense to rely on legacy approaches appliances and packaged software for your organization-critical function like network performance monitoring?

  5. Is the legacy application written in a language that makes it more difficult for you to establish compatibility between the system and the operation environment?

  6. What are the key issues to consider in the migration process relative to directory, email, calendars, archives of current email content and legacy applications?

  7. Have you taken appropriate steps to identify the population, its cohorts, the products, product codes, the sales channels and legacy IT system data extracts?

  8. Does your organization want to reconcile converted financial data using legacy reports or will the reconciliation be directly against the legacy databases?

  9. What if there was a better way to enable consumable microservices application architectures on legacy applications at a fraction of the cost and time?

  10. Should the same security policy that controlled access in the legacy application apply or should the security policy be further restricted or relaxed?

Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Legacy Software investments work better.

This Legacy Software All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
