You have legacy systems that you no longer use productively but can’t shut down because you still need to retain the data? Sit back and trust AvenDATA as a strong partner to archive your legacy systems in compliance with the law.

Further operation of legacy systems?
Not with us.

In case of system changes, companies are being increasingly confronted with the following question: What should I do with my applications which were no longer used productively becoming legacy systems? In general, the data from legacy systems must still be kept for years. Besides, they must fulfill different requirements, for example, for the access of the financial tax auditors, customer checks etc. There are also requirements typical for different branches, such as tracing of charges, informing suppliers, etc. These requirements are generally worldwide and are not limited to one country. These are the challenges the companies are confronted with when dealing with legacy systems. On the other hand, further operation of legacy systems is not only cost-intensive, it also makes the IT departments of companies less flexible and vulnerable.

productive systems

Invest your resources better in productive systems and feel free to leave the handling of unproductive legacy systems to us.

That’s the challenge: Should the IT budgets continue to be spent on license agreements and servicing contracts of legacy systems or are there any more useful applications for them? Will there be enough professional and technical know-how for the further operating of legacy applications in the future? What if the manufacturer’s support of the legacy system runs out or a hardware change occurs?

Advantages of ViewBox


Each of our archiving projects is based on a fixed price, giving you the necessary planning and budget basis. The fixed price includes migration and ongoing costs.

Merge & Acquisitions

The ViewBox can be used not only for decommissioning systems, but also for carve outs required due to company acquisitions.

IT resource savings

By decommissioning legacy systems, internal resources are freed up that can now be used again for productive systems or other projects. These do not further burden the internal resources.

Switch off legacy system

The main goal of archiving is to be able to decommission the legacy system afterwards. After a project with us, this refers to the application as well as the old server and the old database.


Documentation For each archiving project, you will receive a procedure documentation from us, which documents the essential evidence for the internal audit and the auditors. It takes into account the evidence for data integrity, data completeness and audit security.

Multi-client capability

The archiving software is multi-client capable and can therefore be used for different clients and systems from a wide range of manufacturers. You are able to build an archive for all your legacy systems.

General Data Protection
Regulation (GDPR)

We have considered everything -
also, the 'right to be forgotten'.
ViewBox is already compliant with
the new EU-GDPR.

From May 25th, 2018 the data protection act (GDPR) of the European Union (EU) is also
valid in Germany. The essential innovations include the ‘right to be forgotten’ which
implies the deletion claims of affected persons directly at the storing place. With the
ViewBox such data can be made unrecognizable in the sense of EU-GDPR. Companies
will additionally get an expanded accounting duty for the handling of data. And in case
of risk-afflicted data processing a ‘data protection-subsequent evaluation’ must be
carried out according to certain criteria. With the ViewBox by AvenDATA – unlike with
other systems – you are prepared for these new legal basic requirements very well.
