Legacy IT Systems: Keep 'Em or Cut 'Em?
How do you calculate the expiration date on your legacy IT systems? It's a question CIOs must grapple with as they look at which IT systems are worth keeping around, and which are on the way out. In this issue of CIO Decisions ezine, we speak to experts about how they devise keep-vs.-cut formulas that go beyond trusting their gut, and feature CIOs who have made the transition and have lessons to share.
Also in this issue, we examine the results of TechTarget's 2015 IT Priorities Survey; look at the ways in which enterprises can incorporate a diversified cloud strategy; investigate the buzz around the Docker's brand of container software and whether enterprises should invest; document how L.L. Bean Inc. is cataloguing its data; and speak with Deepak Agarwal, CIO at the School District of Palm Beach County, Fla., about why scalable Web apps are scoring top marks in his book.
