It is not uncommon for a business to spend six figures and many months developing custom enterprise software. For most, the investment will bring a healthy return on investment — assuming the custom software platform is architected in a way that efficiently supports the company and its operations. But there is one thing that often stands in the way of a significant ROI: lack of proper software updates and maintenance.
Unfortunately, many assume that software development is a one-and-done sort of project. That simply isn’t the case. You must think of your software as dynamic and evolving and as such, it requires periodic updates.
