Software Maintenance


Keeping Pace with Technological Change

The only thing constant in the world is change. The speed of technological change in the software industry is phenomenal. Windows 8, the shift from 32-bit to 64-bit computing, GPUs, cloud computing, mobile, wearables, multi-core processors are just a few examples in recent times of the fast-moving environment we live in today. While software doesn't "wear out", eventually it becomes obsolete as the computing environment evolves.

It's unrealistic to expect you to stay on top of technology trends and try to determine what's real, what's fantasy and what could actually help your business. Don't worry; you don't have to. That's our job. Our software development team has access to the latest software development tools, libraries and techniques from Microsoft, Intel and other industry leading companies to ensure we are at the forefront of technological changes.

Software Upgrades

A software maintenance contract is without doubt the preferred way to stay up to date. If you have let you support lapse it may be possible to upgrade from your older software to the latest release. Fees to upgrade from an older release are based on a sliding scale where the older the version you currently have the higher your cost. At a certain point in time, your software is so old that it will not be possible to upgrade. Bottom line; time is money.
