Why is it important to transition early from a discontinued GADS software system?

by ronfluegge 1. July 2019 08:00

All transitions take time. Not only do you need to move your GADS data over to another system and ensure that the new system is correct, but you also need to train your staff members in using the new system. If you wait too long to transition to your new system, you may find yourself running into issues later.

Further, if you wait until your software system is already discontinued, you won’t be able to get any help from your software company following the transition. This will make what could be a simple task an arduous process.

Transitioning early gives you times to iron out any potential problems and get your staff members acclimated to the new software’s use.

What happens when a software system gets discontinued?

by ronfluegge 1. June 2019 18:45

If your GADS software system is being discontinued, you may be wondering what will happen. When software is discontinued, your software will no longer be updated and at some point, customer support will end. You won’t be able to take advantage of new technology, and you may have problems if you upgrade your computer’s operating system.

Further, if you have any technical support issues with your software, there will be no one available to help you from the software provider, although third party help may be available. This could prove to be disastrous; you could come in one day and discover that you can’t access your data at all. Though some problems might be ultimately resolved, you may experience significant downtime.
