CRANFORD, NEW JERSEY - Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration firm, will present a case study on how information archiving enables decommissioning of legacy applications to achieve ROI and compliance at the 2016 Gateway to Innovation Conference on May 11, 2016 at America's Center Convention Complex, St. Louis, MO.  

In the presentation, Establishing an Application Retirement Strategy for Massive Savings, Douglas J. Vargo, Vice President, Information Management, will discuss how Paragon deployed its Application Decommissioning Factory Model and EMC’s InfoArchive solution to enable a Fortune 100 firm to retire legacy applications for cost savings, increased efficiency and elevated compliance.

Paragon’s Application Decommissioning Factory Model, which was recently awarded the distinction of Best Digital Transformation Solution by the Enterprise Content Division (ECD) of EMC Corp., is a repeatable framework methodology for the establishment of archiving strategies and implementation of enterprise archive services with EMC InfoArchive. This methodology provides clients with a complete program consisting of the people, processes, and technology to address archiving and information governance holistically, enabling clients to better prepare for specific initiatives such as archiving, records management, consolidation, decommissioning and more. 

“Organizations are maintaining decade-old legacy systems that are inefficient and do not support today’s governance requirements simply to gain access to data,” Vargo states.  “We have demonstrated how firms can eliminate these systems to mitigate information governance risk and make better use of IT budgets for innovation and digital transformation initiatives.”
