Getting Rid of Legacy Systems

I recently watched a segment on King 5 News around how some government agencies are using legacy systems for their day-to-day work. The article was highlighting the software program used at the Washington Department of Licensing to process vehicle registrations, however, there are a number of additional agencies that are using legacy programs and platforms for their day-to-day processes. The segment went on to discuss how expensive it would be to update all of those systems.

Higher demands on systems with fewer resources

Although the segment was discussing a program written in COBOL code, there are other systems in need of replacing throughout the State, as well as in private sector. Today more than ever before, agencies and employees are being asked to do more with fewer resources and less money. Organizations are looking to turn to programs and applications that are based on newer technologies that they can take ownership and rely less on vendors for support.

New technology & the right partner will allow you to take control

Recently, Washington State Department of Transportation decided that they needed to move off of their Stellent/Oracle Enterprise Content Management system and on to a system that allowed the Agency to really take control of the system and utilize in-house resources as much as possible to support the system. The Agency chose the ILINX suite of products, and they are in the process of migrating their current system on to the new ILINX platform.
