  7. 7. FBI’s Virtual Case File Project<br />The best documented IT project failures are the ones involving public money. The most recent example is the Virtual Case File project for the FBI. <br />The FBI had admitted the Virtual Case File Technology had failed to meet the bureau’s requirements and that:<br />Five years of development and <br />$US 170 million in cost <br />…. but the requirements for the software changed more than one time after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the USA (Gross, 2005). The office of the inspector general found that FBI was still defining the requirements after two years since the start of the project (Fine, Glenn, 2002). Science Application International Corporation also said that the communication with FBI was difficult because of the high turn over of top IT managers (Gross, 2005).<br />
  8. 8. Software Failure Case:UK Government Operational Failure <br />A computer failure at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) was &quot;blown out of proportion&quot;, says the government. The DWP admitted 80,000 staff were not able to process new pensions and benefits claims for several days<br />DWP computer specialists have launched an investigation into the massive IT failure which took out a third of their computer network. <br />BBC political correspondent James Hardy said on Friday: &quot;After nearly five days of chaos and round the clock repairs, the system was finally given the all clear this afternoon.&quot; <br />In a written parliamentary statement, the DWP said that in 2003/2004 it spent £412.5m onexternal management and technical support, including consultants, advisers, accounts and lawyers.<br />http://www.lessons-from-history.com/node/89<br />
  9. 9. Software Failure Case: Software failure in hybrid vehicles<br />In May 2005 automaker Toyota recalled 160,000 of its Priushybrid vehicles following reports of vehicle warning lights illuminating for no reason, and cars&apos; gasoline engines stalling unexpectedly. <br />But unlike the large-scale auto recalls of years past, the root of the Prius issue wasn&apos;t a hardware problem -- it was a programming error in the smart car&apos;s embedded code. The Prius had a software bug.<br />http://www.lessons-from-history.com/node/89<br />
  10. 10. Software Failure Case:LSE Breaks Down Biggest Failure in 8 Years<br />Sept. 8 (Bloomberg) 2008 - London Stock Exchange Group Plc, operator of the world&apos;s fourth-largest market, broke down on the day European equities posted their biggest gain in five months, hurting clients who trade an average $17.5 billion a day.  <br />Trading resumed at 4 p.m. after an earlier computer failure left clients unable to buy or sell shares for about seven hours, according to the LSE&apos;s Web site. <br />About 352 million shares, worth $2.5 billion, changed hands in the first hour of trading before the halt, more than twice the amount in the same period a week ago, sending the FTSE-100 index up as much as 3.8 percent. <br />The breakdown left traders in Europe&apos;s financial capital in limbo as equities around the world rallied on the U.S. government&apos;s takeover of mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The LSE, Europe&apos;s oldest independent exchange, said attempts to fix its biggest computer failure in more than eight years took ``longer than expected.&apos;&apos;<br />http://www.lessons-from-history.com/node/89<br />
  11. 11. Software Failure Case:Overstock.com&apos;s 4 Year ERP Nightmare<br />October 8, 2008 - Looking back through its short history, it appears that the ERP implementation has been nothing but trouble. The strife started in 2005. That&apos;s when Byrne&apos;s &quot;my bad&quot; mea culpa over the $14.2 million loss was further exacerbated by a customer service meltdown related to the hurried Oracle ERP rollout. <br />Overstock&apos;s transition from a homegrown ERP package to the new Oracle system, which was rushed to completion before the 2005 holiday shopping season, left it unable to tell customers the status of their orders or to provide any shipping information, reported The Register&apos;s Ashlee Vance in late October 2005. The result: Overstock.com&apos;s customer tracking systems were down for nearly a week. &quot;In total,&quot; Vance added, &quot;it&apos;s a shocking display for a supposed Internet-savvy retailer meant to compete with the likes of Amazon.com and eBay.&quot; <br />http://www.lessons-from-history.com/node/89<br />

  16. 16. Chaos Report (1995)<br />The Standish Group research shows a staggering 31.1% of projects will be canceled before they ever get completed. <br />Further results indicate 52.7% of projects will cost over 189% of their original estimates.<br />On the success side, the average is only 16.2% for software projects that are completed on-time and on-budget.<br />Source: http://www.it-cortex.com/Stat_Failure_Rate.htm<br />

  19. 19. Why IT Project Fail?<br />Poor planning<br />Unclear goals and objectives<br />Objectives changing during the project<br />Unrealistic time or resource estimates<br />Lack of executive support and user involvement <br />Failure to communicate and act as a team<br />Inappropriate skills<br />http://www.projectperfect.com.au/info_it_projects_fail.php<br />
  20. 20. Why IT Project Fail?KPMG Canada Survey (1997)<br />Poor project planning. Specifically, inadequate risk management and a weak project plan. Risk management becomes more important as the organization gets bigger, so larger organizations need to pay more attention to this area. <br />Weak business case. The need for the system should be justified in ways that relate directly to the organization&apos;s business needs. <br />Lack of top management involvement and support. This often dooms the project to failure before it starts. Securing buy-in from the top, often by a strong business case backed up with a realistic project plan, is an essential step. <br />
  21. 21. Why IT Project Fail? KPMG Canada Survey (1997)<br />Projects fail more often because of schedule overruns than budget overruns. <br />Many projects fail because they use new or unproven technology. <br />Poor estimates or weak definitions of requirements at the project planning stage also contribute to project failure. <br />Projects can run into trouble due to the vendors&apos; inability to meet commitments. <br />
