What information is it you are seeking?

Project management plans for updating software?

Hiring a PM to handle the project?

Software to replace what you have already?

Process, process, process

by ricm9 In reply to Directions

I'm looking for an auditable process that starts from a request from the business or infrastruture unit, through physically retiring software, ending with project closeout type activities. Additionally, things to look out for (did you back up and/or archive the associated data, etc.).

Decommissioning tool?

by greg.flay In reply to Decommissioning process

In addition to a process temaplate, does anyone have recommendations for storing data in online, read-only mode after system decommissioning? Are there systems that can manage this read-only data preserved in business context (not just a set of data tables in a database)?
