Replacing a system is not simple, does not take place very often and is risky. Remaining in control during such a process is essential to ensure the reliability and continuity of automated data processing. Would you like to know more about the supervision of migrations?

The term ‘end-of-support’ means that there is no longer regular support for an application and that regular security patches or other patches are and will no longer be available.

As an organisation, it is important to respond to a situation of such kind at an early stage and to look for a suitable alternative. If it is already too late, it is very important to act decisively. This can be realised by taking measures regarding the continuity and security of the current situation and also by taking action towards a new future environment.
