8 steps to successfully integrate with legacy systems

When it comes to IT automation, what works for some may not work for all. A critical component of the distributed data environment, orchestration across new and proprietary legacy systems sounds more difficult than it is. Legacy platforms still have their place in the enterprise, and when the technology is properly automated, IT is free to pursue more strategic projects and innovation. Fortunately, there are effective strategies that can help, and a series of steps you can follow for success.

Orchestration and automation: Easier than it sounds

It’s no secret that removing manual human intervention in IT system operations means less chance for error. Automation is the key—especially in deploying software, applying patches, closing security gaps, monitoring and reporting, and so on. However, most applications span multiple hardware and software systems, including some new and old, and even legacy systems that have proven costly or difficult to replace. To automate IT processes, orchestration across these systems is often required; something many legacy systems just weren’t built to support.

Legacy systems include mainframes, software built with out-of-date frameworks or languages, or those coupled with hardware appliances that have no upgrade path. There are many reasons why organizations can’t or won’t remove or update legacy IT systems: Organizations are continuing to grow their mobile presence, moving their data centers and applications to the cloud, using newer and more agile DevOps strategies around containers, and adopting agile development practices. This makes it critical to find a way to include legacy infrastructure in this strategy. If you find yourself in this dilemma, there are some steps you can take to be successful.
