äldre datasystem
Explanation:
Legacy System: A technically obsolescent component of the infrastructure of a content management environment. Although the functionality that is delivered by a legacy system to enterprise business processes may be available from more modern technology, a migration to using newer systems may be deterred by the possibility of service disruption during system upgrading, or by the perceived difficulty in converting legacy content to conform to new content models and formats.

Legacy application: An application in which a company or organization has already invested considerable time and money. Typically, legacy applications are database management systems (DBMSs) running on mainframes or minicomputers. An important feature of new software products is the ability to work with a company's legacy applications, or at least be able to import data from them.

The meaning is NOT tied to a particular vendor or manufacturer, it is a generic term(Although 90+% of them are IBM).

"Befintliga" is not quite correct either because current systems are not necessarily legacy systems. Legacy systems are usually from the 70's and 80's

Hope this helps...

äldre system med data som ska "ärvas" av ett nytt


Explanation:
Jag har sett utrycket användas i ovanstående betydelse. Hundraprocentigt säker kan man inte vara med så lite kontext som du gav. Hoppas du får fler förslag och kan se vad som går in i sammanhanget.

Ett exempel: At 0700 hours on Monday, October 4th, XXX’s Birmingham - based UK Aftermarket Emissions Operations joined those in previously implemented Sweden, Denmark, France and Germany, by switching off 20 years old (non Y2Kcompliant) legacy systems and “going live - wall to wall” with European standard xxx software. -- översattes med: Kl 07.00 måndagen den 4 oktober anslöt sig XXX:s anläggning i Birmingham för avgassystem till eftermarknaden till de redan inkopplade företagen i Sverige, Danmark, Frankrike och Tyskland. De 20 år gamla (ej år 2000-anpassade) ärvda systemen stängdes av och det nya ”heltäckande” systemet med det europeiska standardprogrammet xxx startades.
