Don't pretend there isn't a massive cost on "keeping up". It's not just money, but time and stability. The idea that if something isn't "modern" it's broken is absurd. Going with the latest fad massively increases bad code and abandoned technology as it gets dropped for the next latest thing.

Quote:
the longer they wait to move to a more modern tech stack
Which modern stack? What if you pick wrong? I've interviewed at companies and worked on several projects which picked wrong. (In retrospect the architecture and/or design was sound for most, but the technology picked had become an impediment.)

And it does cost money and that's a valid consideration. I worked on a project which was painful because the embedded devices were stuck in 2003. They could have been updated to modern hardware (and thus more modern development) but at a massive cost with marginal benefit for the customer. Try telling a customer they need to spend tens of millions of dollars so the software engineers will have an easier time.
