This project will continue the decommissioning work of the last two years, and remove obsolete infrastructure from our environment to prevent the accumulation of old kit that creates major difficulties for us when those systems are no longer supportable.
We have often not been aware of some systems going out of support until very close to their de-support date. By planning for an annual review of the end of life dates for servers and software, we can minimise the risk to systems and business areas by alerting them in advance to impending obsolescence, allowing more time to plan for required upgrades or migrations.
This project will build on the work of the major decommissioning project started in 2014/2015. This project will review which kit is obsolete or will be obsolete with this year, and plan for its removal. It shall ensure plans are in place this year to review and update the information collated about the service life of the current supported infrastructure.
This project will also ensure that our information, about our infrastructure, is maintained and that work plans are arranged with business areas so that exit plans are prepared well in advance of de-support by vendors.
