1. I love the points you raised about the cost of maintaining near-obsolete technology. People get so excited about all they have available they forget the cost of maintaining those systems and everything else that comes along with it.

    Another thing I can see people overlooking are the new architecture vulnerabilities that are beginning to surface. Considering Intel was only going back to generation 5 and up for offering some sort of patch for Meltdown and Spectre, does he really want to inherit a bunch of servers and hardware that are unpatchable to this new classification of emerging vulnerability threats?

  2. Very good points, Eli. My organization has been doing some streamlining over the last year since I’ve joined them.

    For me, I like the direction the business is headed towards but for others who have been with the organization for about five years or longer… not so much.
