Exploring different cost models is a great opportunity to benefit from new services like SaaS (Software as a Service) which gives instant access to the latest versions of software at a much lower cost then acquiring, integrating and maintaining it.

Or else, the much expensive IT would turn a 'millstone' around the retailers neck.
