Reducing Legacy Systems and Technical Debt across Government
Put your legacy problems in the past
Solving the problems of legacy IT and technical debt is on Government’s critical path (National Audit Office 2023 Value for Money Report). Old systems and infrastructures can drain resources, increase operational risk, and hinder essential digital transformation.

Problem is that moving legacy to cloud can be a complex journey with complex dependencies. And not all legacy systems are ready for transformation or the move to the cloud.
When ready, here’s where Atos helps public sector departments and agencies:
- Trusted transformation partner to UK Government
- Reduction to TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
- Significant cost savings on IT support
- Enhanced citizen and workforce experiences
- Faster, better decision making
- Improved business process efficiency
- Service continuity assured with built-in resiliency
Freeing UK Government from legacy IT
Legacy systems and technical debt can seriously impact the resilience, efficiency, and security of UK public services.
So how do we help Central Government departments eliminate the problems of legacy? When it comes to legacy IT, you need history. That’s why Atos is using its decades of experience at the heart of government to safely accelerate legacy workloads to cloud, transform applications, eliminate code debt, re-architect infrastructure, and protect core legacy systems.
Are you held back by:
Old applications, hardware or infrastructure that are costly to maintain and change?
Out of support applications?
Applications you can’t readily move to cloud?
Technical debt built into applications or architecture?
Loss of technical skills or documentation?
Our vision is the strategic and tactical eradication of problems caused by legacy IT and technical debt, unleashing the power of digital transformation and ultimately transitioning public sector to low-code/no-code software-as-a-service for maximum resilience, efficiency and agility.
We’ll work collaboratively to advise, support and enable you with pioneering solutions at every stage of this journey.

Tier 1 – IT Asset Disposal, Refurbishment and Resale
How old devices can be put to good use often takes a back seat when compared to the benefits that arise from modernising the digital workplace. IT disposal creates extra work and data risk. Furthermore, compliance with legislation, including GDPR, and potential fines from non-compliance, rarely generates excitement. Tier 1’s approach to secure IT disposal is simple. It guarantees the security of data to the highest Government and ADISA standards and emphasises re-use and revenue return. Find out more Tier 1 – IT Asset Disposal, Refurbishment and Resale
