System decommissioning

Decommission legacy IT systems efficiently and securely

Has your current IT landscape become a future barrier? Decommissioning legacy systems can be a complex and critical process, but our experienced team will guide you safely and securely through the change. The result is a modern, efficient, and user-friendly infrastructure.

Boosting business goals through system decommissioning

Over time, legacy IT systems become expensive and inefficient, slowing your organisation’s digital development. Taking the decommissioning plunge can feel overwhelming, but with the help of Nexer’s process the transition is smooth. And the benefits are many:

Lower costs

Increased sustainability
Reducing your environmental impact by using less energy and significantly reducing your it carbon footprint.

Increased security

Tips for smooth system decommissioning

There are certain risks associated with decommissioning legacy systems. Some of the most common risks are data loss and business disruption. To ensure an effective and safe decommissioning, it is therefore important to have a clear mandate from management, to plan the decommissioning carefully, to involve all stakeholders, and to test the process as far as possible.

A sustainable and cost-effective IT landscape

By decommissioning your old or unused systems, the IT landscape becomes more sustainable in several ways. Above all, it reduces carbon dioxide emissions, but system decommissioning also reduces your costs. In addition, the entire infrastructure becomes more efficient and secure, while the organisation receives the data required to comply with the EU’s new sustainability directives.
