Cash for (SaaS) Clunkers
The auto industry is not the only one in need of a “Cash for Clunkers” program to get rid of its legacy problems.
The government should seriously think about a similar program to let hapless marketing departments out of their long term contracts with vendors pushing dated technology.
These older systems contribute directly to global warming, since (a) they cause marketers to boil over in frustration and (b) they often feature inefficient application architectures running on older, power- hungry servers.
