As a result business users of IT solution do not possess the complete information about its technical condition any more. Besides, over time a system becomes outdated morally, and it is important to owner to solve in time how to upgrade it and correctly to support that it continued to perform the functions – or to refuse it for benefit of other tool. The impartial assessment of the expert received as a result of audit allows to receive objective data and to draw up the action plan.
