DataNovata enabled us to decommission all our old legacy applications and provide easy access to all the data for years to come.

We wanted to move all our old data from our Iseries/AS400 servers to Microsoft SQL Server, which is our strategic platform for the future, and enable it all to be accessed easily by our existing users. This would allow us to retire all the applications involved together with the obsolescent platform on which they run.

We searched the marketplace for a suitable tool to help us to achieve this.

DataNovata from NSC appeared to be unique and seemed ideally suited to provide us with what we were looking for.

In the event DataNovata exceeded our expectations. NSC quickly understood what we were trying to achieve and we have found DataNovata to be robust and easy to use. The enquiry applications we have created are ideally suited to our requirements.

I would certainly recommend DataNovata to anyone wishing to decommission applications while retaining full access to the data.

“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.”
