Do what matters to sustain growth and innovation after end-of-life software

The evolution of cloud marks a new era in how and where we work. And it’s ushering in the next big wave of legacy technology extinction. The casualty: Your on-premises systems and legacy software.

If your organization is using any technology products approaching end-of-life (EOL) software support, the time to act is now. It is critical to update your technologies as soon as possible or face the risks that come with using end-of-support products:

  • No security fixes or updates leaving you vulnerable to attacks from any new, enhanced or emerging security threat
  • Higher operating costs to independently run out-of-support products, not to mention the business cost if an outage occurs
  • Reduced performance as older technologies are prone to disruptions and outages
  • Software incompatibility keeping you from experiencing the latest and greatest versions of business systems and applications
  • Slower transformation and unrealized business value delaying innovation for your customers and employees
