sistema heredado

Throughout the prosperous decade of the 90's major corporations invested billions in computer infrastructures to handle every aspect of running their businesses.
The systems in existence today are referred to as "Legacy Systems". In the past, large contractors custom designed computer systems for specific businesses. In order to interact with other entities in the normal course of business (i.e. customers and suppliers) via computer, complicated EDIs (electronic data interchanges) have been developed which are extremely expensive and time consuming to implement, and not standardized for the Web.
For example, one company's Legacy System may have an entry for "Unit Price". A supplier's system may identify the same item as "Unit Cost". Their computers cannot talk to each other because their legacy systems identify the same item with a different hard code and format.

I hope this helps you.

sistemas preexistentes

ver este texto :
"Legacysystems" son todos aquellos que resultan anticuados como resultado de la
introduccion de un sistema nuevo (en la practica, todos los sistemas
preexistentes que son incompatibles con uno nuevo). Posibles traducciones
serian "sistema incompatible" o incluso "sistemas preexistentes" (dado que
"legacy" no siempre se refiere a incompatibilidades sino tambien a
problemas de prestaciones o adaptacion).

sistemas heredados

Según el Diccionario conceptual de Informática y Comunicaciones de la Editorial Paraninfo la traducción es "sistemas heredados". También se utiliza el mismo término en los glosarios de Microsoft.
