“IF ORGANIZATION NEEDS TO UPDATE……………….………….THEN IT SHOULD PLAN TO MIGRATE
WHY AN ORGANIZATION SHOULD UPGRADE:
- To maintain software version as per the industry standards and use latest technology
- Microsoft support policy has defined timelines for life of older versions
- Change in business dynamics and challenges faced in optimizing processes. Ex: B2B, Internet penetration, statutory compliances like XBRL, IFRS etc….
- Continuous evolution of technology creates scarcity of resources supporting older versions of software & hardware
- Evolution of other software like .NET, MS office creates gap between usability and sustainability of older versions.
- Redundant transactional data gets accumulated over a period is only required for records and analysis. But importantly makes system slow and consume resources which can be better utilized.
