IDC PlanScape: Legacy Application Management in Healthcare

This IDC PlanScape presents the key challenges of modern healthcare organizations and the main goals of legacy management that can address these barriers. It also presents a view on the major stakeholders of a legacy management project and a four-phased approach to its execution."The range and type of new business models and initiatives are defined by the lack of IT agility and not by the business itself in a legacy environment," said Jonas Knudsen, research director, IDC EMEA Health Insights. "Legacy application management is a key area of concern for healthcare CIOs and should be managed, so the healthcare organization can maintain its drive toward new business models and implement a modern infrastructure with corresponding services."
