Who is ready to party like it’s 1999 and who remembers anything from the 90’s, especially application development lessons?  What about user experience?  No one was talking about that back then, right?  It’s the simple things that make us better.  Let’s talk about the days of outdated technology, shall we?

Remember Outdated Technology?

20 years ago the cutting firms of the world were standing up the first ERPs at lightening paces. High powered iSeries or AS400 solutions that could solve all of the problems in the world by automating business processes were changing the way our forefathers conducted business. Green screens were changing the world. Cell phones were for drug dealers & power brokers, so they were safely mounted in your BMW.


Fortunately for me, I didn’t have to write code to run on a server with 8 MB of memory. Or for a screen that only had 2 colors. However, its’ amazing the number of clients who have & still do profitably run on solutions from that era. What’s even more amazing?  The actual impact on profitable that can be added when we make simple changes to those types of solutions.
