IT years are like dog years
Every calender year is equivalent to 5-9 IT years.
We’re sure you’re familiar with the concept of dog years. They say the first year of a puppy’s life is the equivalent of 15 human years. And your dog ages the equivalent of five to nine human years every calendar year.
Just as an older dog needs to be taken to the vets more regularly, so too must older IT systems get specialist attention and have more preventa- tive work done.
