How do companies stay ahead in the marketplace? How do you keep up? Everything ages over time, some things - like fine wine, art or cheese - even age better with passing time. Your technology? Not so much. When is the last time you tried to send a FAX (remember those?), or tried to check your email through your flip phone? Probably not so convenient - or timely - or efficient.

Why use a flip phone when you can use a smart phone? They both deliver the same end user experience. But the latter makes it experience all the more richer, provides more capacity and makes communicating more efficient - to name a few.

So why hang onto your old software?

What may have met your needs in the past, more than likely does not meet your needs today. Thankfully, technology offers newer methods and versions that make doing the same 'old thing' - better, faster and more efficient.

CIOs do not have the resources to spend on innovation - they often feel trapped because they are spending 60 percent of their budgets just keeping the lights on. This does not leave much wiggle room for new thoughts and innovative project spending. If you are really smart, you need to re-balance your IT spend to the areas that provide the most ROU.
