All software has an end-of-life timeframe that must be taken into consideration. By documenting a decommission plan we take into account all of the ways sofware used connects to and indirectly connects to other pieces of software, systems, etc. along with custom scripts, automation, etc. that might rely on the software and can become detrimental to business operations. By creating a decommission plan we reduce the risk of interrupting the business when software is removed from service.
