Proprietary & Deprecated Maintenance
What is Proprietary Software?
Proprietary refers to a software that was either built in-house or built for a company’s specific needs. It usually has strict limitations in function, purpose, and source code. A proprietary software is one that is designed to serve a specific job function but does not usually talk to other systems. In some cases, proprietary software could be closed source, a limited license, or have other restrictions when it comes to further development due to intellectual property rights.
What is Deprecated Software?
When a deprecated software is used in a business environment, it is safe to assume that they understand the risk of the software but depend upon it. A deprecated software may have a security flaw or limitiation in future development due to an old foundation. The software developer may have stopped developing it because better alternatives have entered the market or perhaps a major change would mean losing older features as well as support for those features.
