If your organisation’s technology relies on an old, deeply-rooted set of software systems to operate, then you understand how impossible it seems to try uprooting and replacing said software. Luckily, you don’t necessarily need to replace old software platforms. Often, the better approach is to strategically develop on top of them.
If you ever find that your existing platforms aren’t meeting your business needs, the costs and risks of replacement often leave room for minimal options. But by adopting a regular maintenance cycle, you can rapidly improve software while adjusting your legacy software to fit your long-term business plans.
