A very short list

I don't expect El Reg to investigate and itemize every ERP or related enterprise system implementation failure, but I could name another dozen or so without much effort. Twenty years ago Hershey's was one of the major dust-ups that was frequently listed, partly because its go-live happened to coincide with the Halloween ordering cycle. ERP implementation failure is even the subject of academic research "Critical Failure Factors in ERP Implementation" is one paper I have in my files. Many public sector failures don't see the light of day unless they cause monumental losses, including the "trash it and start again variety".
