Just like bread is to butter similarly software also has a very close relationship with the word ‘update’. The strength of this relationship is so much that software is incomplete without updates & vice versa. But, having too many updates within short intervals can be extremely annoying, and realistically it does not add much value to the software as well.
From a business sense, going for a major update can be costly and take a lot of time as well. ‘Yes,’ it is important for software to continuously update because as customers we expect seamless performance but it is always not necessary to go for a major update to shine brightly and make an impression, but that is not the case always, instead, minor updates can be rolled out to make the software have a buttery smooth performance.
However, if your business is having an extremely old version of software then it's high time that you go for that update because the old version will not be able to match your expectations as earlier since the new version will have a lot of performance and security enhancements.
