No one likes infrastructure
upgrades. Replacing new hardware is a costly, never-ending battle. But software
upgrades, especially major ones, can entail even lengthier and more expensive
When it comes to dealing with today’s massive volumes of data—processing it,
analyzing it and reporting on it— well not upgrading can be even more expensive.
Often software upgrades introduce major changes. Whether by choice or due to
changing technology, these changes affect not only existing features, but also
the underlying data structures and platform.
And almost certainly, the added features require newer, more efficient server
hardware, memory and storage.
