Instron chooses DataNovata to access data history and decommission its legacy applications

Instron is a leading global manufacturer of test equipment designed to evaluate the mechanical properties of materials and components.

Instron contacted DataNovata mid-2018, after many years of searching for a solution to let it decommission unsupported applications and platforms without losing dynamic access to the data history.

It was important to Instron that the solution would:

  • Allow the user direct, easy and secure access to the data history, to free up IT staff to perform other important tasks
  • Enable Instron to quickly decommission the original application and platform, to reduce maintenance costs and resources.

The first application selected for retirement was a single dataset, QuoteWerks, a quote/order management system. With the DataNovata solution in place, Instron will continue to add incremental databases, until all the entire legacy estate is retired.


Instron was founded in 1946, in Massachusetts USA. Its UK offices are located in High Wycombe, BUCKS (

The DataNovata solution was implemented by NSC LegacyData Systems (
