It’s that time of year when we open the windows and start cleaning items that have gathered dust during the past winter. For IT departments in the financial services community, spring cleaning is about tackling the growing number of outdated, unsupported, and costly legacy applications that represent more than half of their application portfolios—gathering dust and at the same time gobbling up more than 70% of IT budgets.
On June 24, 2015, from 6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., members of New York’s financial services IT community join Flatirons, Accenture, and EMC to discuss the challenges of legacy applications and share best practices for cleaning up their IT portfolios.
Guests will learn from each other and hear from Joel Berman, project executive, who will share how he navigated BMO Harris Bank to:
- Begin application decommissioning of one of BMO’s PeopleSoft applications using EMC’s InfoArchive tool.
- Within 12 weeks began seeing a return on their investment that is now saving BMO more than $5 million annually.
- Chart a path for BMO to systematically retire other legacy and merger-based applications and enable BMO to leverage the significant savings into strategic IT reinvestment.
