Why are Successful Businesses Upgrading Their Legacy Systems?

When you use outdated, end-of-life legacy software and hardware, you're exposing your business to perform security and compliance risks that could lead to unscheduled downtime, hacking, data loss and fines. In turn, these issues result in low quality products and services and a poor customer experience, which will negatively impact your growth and revenue.

New employees are likely to be trained on current systems with no legacy knowledge so, as people retire or move on, you could be short of legacy expertise. The best talent tends to follow the best technology and culture so, if you want to attract innovators who will help you meet your business goals, you need to modernise.
