London 28th July 2020:   Proceed Group, the SAP and data management specialist has today announced a partnership with digital service provider T-Systems to offer its customers their leading system decommissioning solution, Proceed Cella. A revolutionary new decommissioning tool, Proceed Cella enables businesses to decommission multiple SAP and non-SAP legacy systems while retaining full access to their data and reducing their legacy application footprint. T-Systems will offer Proceed Cella as a SaaS solution, as part of their Managed Application Retirement Services (M.A.R.S.).

Having worked with T-Systems over a number of years on several archiving projects, the team at T-Systems were keen to find out more about the newly developed Proceed Cella product.  As experts in the data decommissioning field, and having worked extensively on joint projects, T-Systems reviewed Proceed Cella and found it an excellent fit for their growing M.A.R.S. business. 

As a SaaS provider, T-Systems needed a decommissioning tool that would be easy to operate and simple for customers to use. Proceed Cella meant customers would be able to quickly access information, reducing the cost of maintaining legacy applications, as well as having fast access to data for auditing and reporting purposes – a key benefit.
