It is true that, over the decades, the classic systems have been equipped with many small, sexy features here and there. Admittedly, it is very impressive to detect all the tiny details the software providers have taken into account. The many customer requests and feedback have left their mark – and let us not forget the several hundred programmers that had to be kept busy somehow.
Besides, the majority of features in the current versions already have reached a certain maturity, thus providing a certain guarantee that possible bugs have been fixed already.
It goes without saying that such a software has a considerable value and this value is reflected in the license fees. We are talking about quite a few hundred Euros per user and module.
You cannot have one without the other, or so it seems.
