"The question is, what does it take to make technology effective, and how much does that cost? In economic terms, we're talking about cost-effectiveness." (Puryear 1999)

In my opinion, finding the proper balance between introducing technology and keeping it current is the most important factor. The cost of this will undoubtedly be much lower if a process is defined in which new forms of technology are introduced and integrated. In some cases this might mean some forms of technology will be avoided as they don't meet the requirements for quick implementation before they are obsolete - Andrew Olson
