Say goodbye to outdated legacy systems without losing access to your precious data

Organisations must constantly adapt and innovate to remain competitive in today's rapidly evolving business IT landscape. A crucial aspect of this evolution is the retirement of legacy applications. These outdated software systems hamper your organisation's flexibility. On top of that, they are not cost-effective and pose a high risk to the security of your data.

Are you looking for a way to decommission these old applications and move to a more efficient, centralised solution? Our Application Retirement or Application Decommissioning solution is designed to help your organisation reduce costs, improve operational efficiency and modernise your organisation's overall IT landscape.

Why implement Application Retirement in your organisation? We like to list some of the benefits:

Cost reduction

Reduce maintenance and licensing costs by moving away from legacy systems. After all, maintenance of legacy systems is inefficient, costly and labour-intensive.

Rest assured: thanks to a seamless migration, all necessary data will be transferred from your old applications. Thanks to the platform, you can also continue to access outdated file formats.

Automated data lifecycle management

Thanks to the flexible metadata model, you can apply all kinds of management rules to your data. Set a destruction deadline and the platform takes care of the rest.

Preserving legacy data for legal requirements

Do you have data that needs to be legally preserved for a long time? In the platform, we ensure long-term, sustainable future preservation.


When all data is on one platform, your employees can find the right documents in no time. This is how you increase the efficiency of your services.
