Re: Typical problem of many large organizations

I do not have a silver bullet, and I do not claim this to be a simple problem. The list of possible underlying causes is, by necessity, short.

The one common factor I found, reading about this and other failures, is the C-level executives oblivious to, or otherwise ignoring, the implied requirements of sane IT infrastructure, and focusing on explicitly stated business needs only.
