    It depends on the best and most pressing opportunities. I agree that it is likely to be some of both at the same time based on business cycles, trigger events or circumstances, application decommissioning, etc. Having a champion and adequate resources is key so selecting the content and system based on that criteria might be the best course of action. How large and regulated is your organization?

    We're working separate efforts on both at the same time. Typically, large opportunities for cleanup have come as the result of something else - an audit/certification, sunset of an application, decommissioning a server, moving data centers, request for increased network space, etc.
