It's time to move on from your legacy ERP system. What to consider when solutions like Deltek GCS reach the end of their lifecycle.
In our next webinar, we’ll explore what many organizations have to face at some point in their ERP system life cycle. And it can be a difficult decision, likely expensive, and disruptive to business. However, sometimes the convenience of keeping a legacy system is outweighed by the risks involved in maintaining it, keeping it compatible with your current business systems and strategy, and being left behind your competitors with the advantages offered in newer systems built for the modern business environment.
Widely used industry solutions such as Deltek GCS have had a good run, and customers across the government contracting industry have squeezed every last bit of life out of the system. According to industry experts at WJ Technologies, “GCS has been a good and stable software solution for government contractors for years. It was first released in the mid-80’s, as System 1, with various capabilities added throughout the years. In or around 2000 the system was released as GCS Premier with a ‘gooey’ interface. Subsequently it was bundled, and then offered in the cloud as DFS-GovCon. Since then there have been no significant revisions to the product. The platform is not supported by Microsoft any longer, and GCS is now slated for de-supporting.”
