Legacy System Modernization

  • The 83rd Legislature directed DIR to study “the composition of the state’s current technology landscape and determine how best to approach and make decisions about an aging infrastructure.” DIR’s resulting October 2014 report, Legacy System Study: Assessment and Recommendations, contains recommendations that reflect primary benefits of the CAPPS system:
    • — Leveraging economies of scale
    • — Facilitating standardization and collaboration
    • — Establishing a statewide application framework
  • CAPPS has allowed for the retirement of statewide (ISAS) and internal agency (AcessHR) legacy systems.
