Why Support Legacy SharePoint Versions Like SharePoint 2010?

In the fast-paced world of technology, where new versions and updates are continuously rolled out, a recurring question often arises: “Why continue supporting legacy SharePoint versions like SharePoint 2010?” The answer, while seemingly straightforward, encapsulates a broader understanding of the technological landscape and the diverse needs of organisations.

First and foremost, it is crucial to acknowledge that technology advances at a breakneck pace. However, the reality is that not all companies can or choose to keep up with this rapid progression. Various factors, including financial constraints and practical considerations, play a significant role in this. Many organisations, for instance, continue to rely on older technologies like SharePoint 2010. Despite their age, these technologies remain functional and meet the essential needs of these businesses.

The frequent push towards upgrading to the latest technology versions often stems not from a dire need for new features but rather from the dwindling support for older versions. This scenario places many organisations in a difficult position. The newer technologies, while advanced, do not always guarantee improved performance or offer significant additional benefits to justify the switch. Furthermore, transitioning to these newer versions often incurs substantial additional costs, which can be a deterrent for many businesses.

At the heart of our approach is the belief in the enduring value of technology that continues to serve its purpose effectively. For organisations still utilising SharePoint 2010, this belief underpins our commitment to providing ongoing support. We understand that these systems, although considered outdated by some, are integral to the day-to-day operations of numerous businesses. They have been tailored over the years to fit specific needs, making them valuable assets that cannot be easily replaced or upgraded.

Our commitment to supporting legacy versions like SharePoint 2010 is not just about maintaining old software. It’s about understanding and respecting the choices of organisations that have found a stable and reliable solution in these technologies. By continuing to offer support, we ensure that these organisations can maintain their operations without the pressure of unnecessary upgrades, allowing them to focus on their core business activities.

Moreover, the support for older technologies like SharePoint 2010 is more than just technical assistance. It represents a broader perspective on technological evolution – one that acknowledges the diversity in organisational needs and capacities. By offering continued support, we provide a safety net for these organisations, ensuring that they are not left behind in the ever-evolving tech landscape.

In conclusion, our continued support for legacy SharePoint versions like SharePoint 2010 is driven by a deep understanding of the varied needs of organisations. We recognise that while technology advances rapidly, not all companies can or need to move at the same pace. Our support for these older technologies is a testament to our commitment to serving the diverse technological needs of businesses, ensuring that they continue to operate efficiently and effectively, regardless of the version of SharePoint they use.
