Having been involved in the IT section of the Financial Services industry for over 20 years and been experienced both good and bad aspects of system deployment, building greenfield operations, migrations and general consultancy work, I figured it was about time to get my thoughts down in writing. You may not agree with all of what I will write here (or maybe none of it) but I welcome all comments and feedback.
The purpose of this blog is to get discussions started and get my thoughts and approach to system deployment out to a wider audience than I current can.
We spend an awful lot of time and money building solutions for problems that are in reality non-critical to the business or focusing on systems when the real solution lies in process and approach .
Its time to stop wasting money and start addressing the right questions, hopefully leading to the delivery of the appropriate answers.
I will not mention names of past (or current) customers nor of colleagues in this blog (unless they wish me to). I would request that any comments also respect this approach.
I look forward to all and any comments on the forthcoming posts.
