5 business problems caused by outdated software

This is the first part of our series on Software Modernization. Every piece of business software is a product of the time and environment it is created in. More so in older methodologies that see the maintenance phase of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) as the end of development than in agile methodologies, the capacity for software to radically break with the central tenets of its development is often limited by this fact.

Even when software is maintained perfectly, and some features have been added over time to meet some previously unknown requirements, there comes a time when the world around said software has simply changed so much that it starts to get outdated. It can no longer be adapted quickly to new requirements, as they are too different from what was required at its inception. When this happens, outdated software can have a significant impact on the business as a whole and can lead to a host of problems.
