IT strategy is becoming more critical with the proliferation of new technologies that need to be integrated with legacy systems, increasing pressures on organizations to become more efficient and growing customer demands for better products and services.

Legacy system evaluation
Companies invest heavily in their IT infrastructure; however, many of the systems that were implemented are becoming outdated. This results in a complex range of issues including escalating costs to maintain and update, a lack of integration with other systems and deficiencies in overall functionality. However, these systems may not, in fact, need to be replaced. They could be replatformed or modernized so companies can make better use of the systems they have already invested in. Intelliware will conduct a legacy system evaluations and/or application effectiveness assessment which will identify key barriers to the effective use of the system, provide recommendations and create action plans for addressing the issues.
