Technology Time Bomb: The devastating effects of neglected maintenance


By: Serge Janssen Daalen, 24 May 2023

First of all, I would like to insist that regular maintenance of software and technology systems is an absolute MUST! It is, however, incredible to discover how many companies have a rather casual attitude when it comes to maintaining their business systems.

In this article, I would like to explain a bit more about the consequences of neglected maintenance, the risks of technical debts -as tech nerds as I call them- and the role Spire Solutions can play in maintaining your business systems.

The consequences of poor maintenance

Ignoring the maintenance of technological systems inevitably leads to serious problems, like:

  • Decreased performance;
  • Greater risk of malfunctions;
  • Security risks;
  • Shorter lifespan; and
  • Expensive (interim) repairs.

Technical debts

Technical debts arise when companies fail to implement timely maintenance. These debts accumulate and in the long run can have truly disastrous consequences. For example, maintaining systems becomes increasingly difficult and the risk of more failures, loss of essential data and crucial security problems becomes ever greater.

It is a trap that many companies, in all their ignorance, fall into. And despite these risks, it seems that the majority of companies do not seem to understand the importance of proper and regular maintenance of their business systems.

So how do we do this at Spire?

At Spire, we understand the importance of regular and thorough maintenance and we take it very seriously. Our team of highly qualified system architects conducts a thorough evaluation of all our systems every year.

We provide transparent report(s) of all findings and implementation of the necessary measures to improve their performance and keep security up up-to-date.
