Data decommissioning and extraction of documentation from legacy systems.


As companies grow and change over time, so do their business processes and the systems that support them. As a result, the IT estate can become fragmented, with important documentation held in many different locations.

Over time, some of these systems may no longer be required, either because their end of life, or because the workflows they support have changed. Having said that, the problem is that the information these systems contain must be preserved.

By extracting data from these legacy systems, you are able to retire the expensive hardware and applications that support them, without losing access to the valuable knowledge they hold.

Documaster can help you decommission your systems, or you can take advantage of our unique Decom tool and do it yourself.
