After 5 years, you should be aware that we don't do ASAP. . .
Unless an environment is to be de-commissioned, it is incompetent (if not worse) to allow software products to "run forever". I'm not sure what you want to "track" but the main issues with out of date software are:
1. Will no longer be supported.
2. Will not run on the "next" operating system/hardware upgrade.
3. Bug fixes may not be applied to old code but only to supported code.
4. New features will not be available.
