What are legacy systems?


A legacy system is an outdated or unsupported system that is still used within a business, despite there being an updated version available.

Despite many organisations still relying on legacy IT systems, they can obstruct business growth and lead to significant operational costs. Developers with legacy knowledge is getting harder to find in an ever-thinning talent pool, the technology is unreliable and expensive, while the increased security risks make it even more important to modernise and optimising it.


Top reasons for updating legacy systems


  • Our legacy system is slow and cumbersome and we want to improve its speed, performance, look and feel.
  • Our legacy systems need attention but don't want have the money to rip and replace
  • The tech our systems used is outdated and we're concerned about its reliability
  • We can't adapt quickly to business challenges and market change
  • We'd like to be able to automate tedious administration tasks such as data entry, invoice generation and event registration

Minimising risk, cost and impact...

Sometimes new isn't better. There are times in the life of any business when a legacy system fits the brief better than a new or 'off the shelf' product. Some of the many reasons why companies need legacy systems support can be;

  • When the existing system is still fit for purpose but cannot be supported internally due to staff changes
  • When there are challenges to the ROI on existing systems
  • In order to bypass vendor lock-in or punitive contracts
  • Retraining support personnel is too expensive for the foreseeable future
  • When the existing system is still fit or purpose or there is purely and simply no need for a new system

When these situations occur, you need a team that you can trust to deliver systems support accurately, intuitively and cost-effectively.

PSP's Approach

Whether you are looking to modernise your legacy technology, or for trusted legacy system support, you are in safe hands. As a first step, we'll devote our time to understanding your business, its current issues and what your technology needs to deliver. We take on board employees' suggested improvements, plus any functionality that must remain for them to be able to do their job.

Understanding your people, systems and process (PSP) is the most crucial part of the process as every project is unique to each company.

We also meticulously analyse and document your existing systems before supplying you with a design of our proposal so you can visualise how your system will look, feel and work.

Most legacy systems support solutions are provided using an ongoing maintenance agreement with PSP-IT acting as an additional virtual team member working to your project specifications. A timetable of patches, fixes and backwards compatibility programming will be agreed on an individual basis and to suit your budget.
