How Well Do You Know Your Legacy System?

Jump Start Monday — Modernization Readiness Boot Camp

Documentation can stop your problems before they begin. Adequately documented system and applications prevent your organization from losing time and revenue. Good documentation not only prepares your team to prevent these problems by operating efficiently, it equips your team to solve problems faster when they do happen. Use this easy checklist from the Modernization Readiness Boot Camp to determine the status of your legacy system documentation.
