Ford Dumps Online Purchasing Software After 4-Years, Millions Of Dollars Wasted
from the now-that-was-useful dept
Remember all those expensive new government computer systems that simply don't work (or made people cry by making the "save" process take 15 steps)? It's certainly not limited to the government sector. Ford is now admitting that they're dumping an internet purchasing system they bought from Oracle four years ago, after being unable to make it work with existing systems. Luckily, they kept the legacy system running, so they're just switching back to that. What's scary is that these stories don't seem that far off the norm. Almost everyone seems to have stories of multi-million dollar enterprise software systems that don't work.
