See what some of our customers have to say about their experience working with and using DataNovata.

Our company is an established corporation working in a highly regulated environment which has grown through acquisitions and mergers. We run an annual currency program, renovating business services that are still required, but have out-of-support components, and decommissioning business services that are end-of-life. At the core of its decommissioning capability our company built a DataNovata archive service.

DataNovata Customer, Aug 9/2018 As published in Gartner Paper ID: 00345378

We worked with the DataNovata team to follow a defined process to deprecate end-of-life business services, while retaining essential data. We used the DataNovata application to provide a convenient interface to support legacy operations through read-only access of the data. DataNovata enables our company to simplify its estate, remove cost, apply data retention policies and comply with regulations.

DataNovata Customer, Aug 9/2018 As published in Gartner Paper ID: 00345378

We recognised that we needed to implement an archiving solution as part of our application rationalisation programme. We chose DataNovata as it provided us with a secure and on-demand method of retrieving legacy data from decommissioned applications.

DataNovata significantly improved our ability to respond to the requirements of the business and retain Yell’s competitive edge.

Kelly Butcher Business File Systems Manager, Yell

There was no lack of vendors who offered to solve our legacy retirement problem. The issue was that they would have to start from scratch for each application, taking more time and money than it was worth. We needed a scalable decommissioning solution we could call off on an as-needed basis, without reinventing the wheel. What sets DataNovata apart is that, in each case we apply it, our business users are hardly aware that we have decommissioned the original system.

IT Director, European Operations Global Office Brands Manufacturer

It is that flexible. We can predict the time, cost and effort for (decommissioning) each application, without reinventing the wheel. The cost-benefit is measured before a project is engaged and user disruption is minimized throughout the process. But DataNovata goes beyond being a cost-reduction platform for legacy operations. DataNovata helps us to plan strategically for cost- and risk-avoidance, wherever we see an opportunity that fits our operational model.

IT Director, European Operations Global Office Brands Manufacturer

DataNovata exceeded our expectations. The team quickly understood what we were trying to achieve and we have found DataNovata to be robust and easy to use. I would certainly recommend DataNovata to anyone wishing to decommission applications.

Stewart Sawinski Technical Architect Controller, SSL

The DataNovata applications not only replicate the original applications’ enquiries, but do so with a considerably improved & more intuitive user interface
