LEGACY SYSTEM REDESIGN
A legacy system is an antiquated computer system or application program which continues to be used because the user (typically an organization) does not want to replace or redesign it.
Technology and understanding operations are key when improving an outdated system.
Managing information systems to improve healthcare or matter of fact in any domain / vertical is one of the toughest jobs in technology today. There are so many technology choices that making the right decision can be a daunting and painstaking process. For example many healthcare professionals work in environments where time and money are rare commodities and the information technology (IT) director faces a multitude of challenges.
The big question is, how do these organizations improve their information system without "busting the budget" and stopping the critical workflow of the organization? Also, what choices allow the organization to upgrade their system without adding extensive training requirements and running the risk of being locked into the wrong solution? Simultaneously, the organizations might have compelling reasons for keeping a legacy system, due to the factors as:
The costs of redesigning the system are prohibitive because it is large, monolithic, and/or complex.
The system requires close to 100% availability, so it cannot be taken out of service, and the cost of designing a new system with a similar availability level are high.
The way the system works is not well understood.
The system has either not been fully documented or such documentation has been lost over the years.
The user expects that the system can easily be replaced when this becomes necessary.
The system works satisfactorily, and the owner sees no reason for changing it.
