This is a grouping of some of the projects we I done over the years.
Software projects are notorious for being delivered behind schedule, over budget and with low quality. A recent study showed that only 30 percent of software projects were completed successfully. Effective software projects share common critical success factors like clearly defined scope and having realistic deadlines.
In November 2012, the United States Air Force (USAF) announced that they have decided to terminate a mega enterprise resource planning (ERP) software project - dubbed the Expeditionary Combat Support System (ECSS) - after spending USD $1 billion, concluded that finishing it would cost far too much more money (another $1.1 billion) for too little gain. USAF have been working on the project since 2005. The Air Force has concluded the ECSS program is no longer a viable option for meeting their requirements and instead will be revert back to using its existing and modified logistics system. The ECSS project dated back to 2005, when Oracle won an $88.5 million software contract, securing the deal over rival SAP and other vendors. It was supposed to replace more than 200 legacy systems. According to sources, the USAF has received usable hardware and software with a value of less than $150 million from the program.
