The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Legacy system specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 820 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Legacy system improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 820 standard requirements:
- If the path forward waits until a new generation of devices essentially replaces an old generation of devices which could be somewhere between 5 and 15 years, what does the path forward look like for the legacy devices and their software maintenance?
- Many times we look for new applications to meet our business needs; requirements are defined, software is evaluated, software selected, software configuration begins; Ready Set Go! More like Ready, Set, but what about the data?
- Are the migration costs associated with the migration to the selected alternative included in thew new system/application investment, the legacy investment, or in a separate migration investment?
- Many organizations maintain their current legacy systems, believing in the old saying, If it is not broken, why fix it. Do we know where in our organization this thinking makes sense?
- On what terms should a manager of information systems evolution and maintenance provide service and support to the customers of information systems evolution and maintenance?
- What if resources are at the end of their lifecycles, are expensive to operate and maintain, and the skills needed to add functionality or capacity are not readily available?
- At risk with respect to legacy modernization; are you too dependent on expensive skill sets or technologies that cannot respond quickly to changes in the marketplace?
- What events (changes in conditions or states) does the corporation elect to recognize, and what events does it either ignore deliberately, or to neglect to recognize?
- There is a question that is rarely asked in maintenance, a question that we find to be vital in making maintenance efficient and manageable: what is to be maintained?
- If a new system is expected to interface/Integrate with any one of your current 3rd party/ Legacy system then what is the interface/integration required?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Legacy system investments work better.
This Legacy system All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
