Exposure to security issues can also leave you open to other regulations to keep your data and customer data safe.
Your old software may not be compatible with other latest software essential for your business function.
Over time, you find that the application crashes more often and you lose your work. No more bug fixes.
Not enough skills available to support technology that is no longer supported and any support may come at a premium.
