As an IT professional, I’m routinely asked,
“Should I upgrade my software?”
Not including the need to upgrade due to hardware or operating systems requirements, I always respond,
- “What does the new software version or platform do for you that you can’t do now?”
- “Will the new features bring value to the business?”
- “Will this upgrade save you operational time?”
- “Does it fit into your business, strategy, direction and goals?”
Businesses with solid strategy know the answers to these questions.
