Software and Technology Companies: From Legacy to the Future
Risks & Opportunities
Companies that begin to move beyond legacy products into the future face the following risks:
- Your resources may be constrained by supporting existing products – leaving no time to concentrate on the future.
- But if your existing customers are not kept happy, there are downside risks as well.
- You can fail to properly evaluate the current business, product, or customer landscape.
- You can spend resources and time trying to fix a legacy product when it cannot be fixed.
- You can lack the key skill sets required to win the future.
Companies that begin to move beyond legacy products into the future enjoy the following opportunities:
- You can move your company to the next level with a state-of-the-art product, resulting in:
- More customers
- More revenues
- Happier customers who help to improve and market your products
- Small- and medium-sized companies may also attract more investment since investors prefer to pay for new, innovative products rather than investing in correcting defects in existing products.
