Typical problem of many large organizations

Dysupgraditis - permanent inability to deploy required upgrades or patches on time, typically caused by fear of breaking infrastructure. Underlying causes: lack of understanding of the existing infrastructure within the organization, lack of infrastructure to perform pre-deployment testing of patches or upgrades, lack of skill to minimize the downtime or risk from the deployment. Known cure: none.
