A good friend, Michael Krigsman, writes an excellent blog: IT project failures. The reasons vary for project failures and some are data breaches. His blog deserves a mention here because a recent post discussed a project involving IBM Corporation, a company I have had some direct experience with. Michael wrote:
"The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) sent IBM a “Notice to Cure,” accusing the large system integrator of failing to perform its obligations on a data center consolidation contract worth $863 million. According to an internal report prepared by the department, this is a case of the “blind leading the blind,” with both parties at fault."
Ouch! Harsh words. Sad state of affairs for a project.
