4. Current Product Versions – Plan Your Updates now!
Updating the development tools often collides with the project work. Why change something that works? But there are good reasons to update to the current versions:
- Old product versions cause higher costs.
- New features accelerate the development.
- Error corrections avoid workarounds that make the next update more difficult.
You do not know how much your individual installations differ from the standard products and how to determine dependencies and efforts?
We help you to update to the current product versions quickly and easily.
