    Law courts in chaos as IT meltdown disrupts thousands of cases | Law | The Guardian

    I've been following this on Twitter for a while and now it seems to have made it into the MSM.

    Anyone here involved in this?

    "...the main suppliers of the affected technology, including Atos and Microsoft, were “working hard to restore access..."
    Ahhh.

    Some background of the status of the project at el reg:

    Ministry of Justice abandons key plank of GBP280m IT project • The Register

    Just sounds like most government projects.

    Yes the government are spendthrift when it comes to IT (and probably everything else) preferring to spend oodles on expensive consultancies rather than thinking of what they want and buying available solutions. I've come across it lots, for example the DfT spending £500K on a beta programme with KPMG after spending a similar amount on a study with Deloitte and ignoring an available solution that'd cost <£50K. You don't make a name for yourself or secure a future directorship by connecting with UK SME's whatever the bluster

    I just can't believe this is still happening. Makes me ashamed at the state of our industry.

    Most likely it's problems on both sides. We've dealt with ambiguous/badly defined/shifting requirements long enough now. We have ways of managing that so we should be able to cope.
