Technology refresh, or Dynamic IT, which involves wrapping new technology around old legacy systems. Sounds like a new name for Saas.

I have done a dozen stories in the last year or two about companies that have seen huge savings and huge improvements in speed by dumping their mainframes for much faster Wintel-based systems that cost far less. Whether you call it Saas or a new term like Dynamic IT, this could be a strategy of developing competitive DIS-sadvantage.
