White Paper:How To Future Proof Enterprise
Data Analytics Solutions
Future proofing enterprise data analytics solutions is the holy grail, when you consider the total cost of ownership (TCO). For financial reasons such as depreciation, a company may specify the life expectancy of a solution, but we almost never think about it at the time of design. In practice these solutions have a much longer lifespan than originally planed.
For example, it is not uncommon to have a solution fully depreciated in 5 year, and continue to be used and maintained beyond 20 years taking the TCO way up.
