1.1.3 Outline compatibility issues resulting from situations including legacy systems and business mergers.

Legacy systems
  • A legacy system is an old method, technology, computer system, or application program. It may or may not remain in use. Historic data may not have been converted into the new system format and may exist within the new system as a separate partition. The old data might have to be converted into the new one manually to not upset the new system.

Business mergers
  • A merger happens when two firms agree to go forward as a single new company rather than remain separately owned and operated. Therefore, the system from one company must be moved into the other one or both has to be moved to a new system. Resulting in variety of difficulties due to the different systems being handled.
