It’s a difficult choice: will you continue to invest in your old ERP system, upgrade to a new version or replace your existing ERP system completely? The reasons for this dilemma are many and varied: your ERP system may be outdated and expensive to maintain as automatic updates or releases have stopped being developed for it. Perhaps the system no longer meets current security standards and further development would be too costly.
