I agree that the risk of upgrading their system in that fiscal enviornment might have been more, in their minds, than the risk of keeping what's been working fine for 20 years, but to according to the article they did not even have a backup system and this was a mission critical application. It sounds like they still do not have a backup and instead just split it so that the 32k limit is harder to reach. The failure here was in Disaster Recovery Planning rather than Risk Management Assesments.
