Its output was a comprehensive, clear document, describing the current state of the system and proposing different ways of solution (repair of the existing system, partial renewal of the system, complete exchange with a new system, etc.). Based on the overall analysis, we decided to completely restore the system. The system is currently being restored and is fully operational and operational.
