End-of-life pragmatism – an NCC Group whitepaper
Does your organisation have a robust IT Refresh Policy in place?
One of the main concerns relating to the replacement of IT infrastructure is the cost. The risk of introducing compatibility issues and, ultimately, downtime also causes anxiety. However, exploitation of vulnerabilities in legacy systems and software can be damaging to an organisation on both a financial and reputational level.
This whitepaper aims to identify and address these concerns and help with planning and replacing technology that is nearing or has reached its end-of-life (EoL) or end-of-support.
The aim of this paper is to provide initial pragmatic advice on the various options available, how to go about planning a strategy for change and how to manage risk when EoL systems cannot be decommissioned, but yet must continue to operate.
