When services reach the end of their life cycle they are terminated for a number of reasons including technical advancements or availability of alternative tools, high maintenance costs, low usage, a predefined project window or a change in priorities. These guidelines establish UEN’s process for reviewing and terminating online projects and tools that reach the end of their useful life. They apply only to significant web services, such as the Lesson Plan Tool, and not to tasks such as web page clean-up and maintenance. Having an established process for retiring products that are obsolete or otherwise not aligned with current stakeholder priorities helps ensure that UEN resources are being responsibly.
End-of-Life or Retirement: refers to when a product reaches the end of its natural lifecycle.
Low usage: refers to an assessment of utilization statistics to other UEN web services or when the percentage of the audience is below the anticipated utilization for the tool.
