Nobody (except perhaps the mayfly) ages faster than an IT system. A website is an IT system. By way of illustration:
- In the past, there was a new version of Windows every 2 years on average. In between, smaller updates are rolled out on a monthly basis.
- For Ubuntu (also an operating system) there is a new version every 6 months. In between, smaller updates are rolled out on a weekly basis.
- A 5-year-old tablet is practically useless for work
- There is a new version of Google Chrome every 6 weeks
In addition to new functions, security loopholes are constantly being fixed and compatibility with other devices ensured. However, backwards compatibility is sometimes lost as a result. Certain functions are no longer offered (or in a different form) or are very inefficient.
What if you don’t do it? What if you build your website and let it rest in peace for the next few years? Sooner or later it will be hacked or it will stop working at some point.
We at Schär Hoch Zwei therefore have the philosophy of always keeping our managed pages up to date. By making small updates on a regular basis, the risk of breaking something that is difficult to repair is reduced. In addition to technical advantages, there are also other aspects of \”Stay up to date\”.
