Likely it *is* jargon. I wouldn't use it anyways. Can you write
around it? For example, instead of saying "Product X is easily
upgradable" you could simply say "Product X is easily upgraded."

Since you didn't provide any more info on how you were using it as a
word... (and btw, I checked my sources -- including Word -- and it
isn't a word anywhere).
