Description

According to Roger Sessions in his recent white paper "The IT Complexity Crisis", the worldwide annual cost of IT failure is over $6 trillion a year and what’s worse is it is on the increase. The culprit, Roger believes, is complexity, which itself is directly related to function; increase function increases complexity. If we can manage complexity then we can increase IT success – “All we need is a process for making systems simple”.

    The Discussion

      Very interesting discussion. Recently the Auditor General of Canada released a report identifying the problem with aging IT systems and the threat to government services these systems pose. A contributor to the challenge in remedying this problem is the high complexity of these systems and how they evolved to be so complex in the first place. I look forward to reading your white paper.
