Changes to the business often necessitated new software modules, even new systems and re-implementations that can create hurdles for the business and hinder growth. And, with legacy on-premises systems, customizations could break with every upgrade. Additionally, with the release of new functionality, the customer was hard pressed to take advantage of these capabilities without additional significant investment.
