Eliminate Costs and Maintain Data Access with Application Retirement

The Informatica solution for application retirement safely archives legacy applications, while maintaining access to retired data and enforcing retention policies.

When legacy systems no longer support current business processes, they become an increasing liability with every year they remain operational. Without an application retirement program, redundant legacy systems continue to use up valuable resources, require management expertise, and can make accessing data for reporting and compliance purposes difficult. A comprehensive application retirement program can help your company avoid:

  • Excessive data management costs
  • Unnecessary hardware and software maintenance fees
  • Ineffective, inefficient retention and disposal processes to meet regulatory compliance
  • High hardware, power, and data center costs
  • Lengthy e-discovery across data sources
