By this standard – software rots like food in the Nebraska heat. It’s true. If your software isn’t regularly updated, it deteriorates and breaks down.

It is likely your back-office systems were a strategic investment that required a capital outlay. It is also likely that keeping your systems updated will cost less than replacing them more frequently.
