Migration: the dos and don’ts of end of life systems in local government
If you work for an austerity-struck council, you will more than be aware of the pressure you are under from the coalition government to deliver more for less money than you used to have at your disposal. Efficiency savings are therefore top of the agenda, but councils still need to rely on systems that allow them to effectively deliver their services to their constituents, their customers. To achieve this is not an easy task. There are end of life legacy systems to consider, which could make it harder for the council and its partners to meet their changing obligations. An informed Linux implementation assessment is therefore essential in order to analyse your options and to plan for change within the legacy environment.
