“Legacy Systems – Constraints, Conflicts, and Customers” on Iasa Global Blog

Crade to the grave (in 6.2 seconds)

As I was reading Roger Sessions’ latest white paper, “The Thirteen Laws of Highly Complex IT Systems”, Laws 1 and 2 immediately caught my eye:

Law 1. There are three categories of complexity: business, architectural and implementation.

Law 2. The three categories of complexity are largely independent of each other.

That complexity in these categories can vary independently (e.g. complex business processes can be designed and implemented simply just as simple processes can be designed and implemented in an extremely complex manner) is important to the understanding of complexity in IT.

  1. I believe, if independent aspect of three categories gets mixed-up, causing confusion, then simple solution will start seeming complex. Focus, clarity of purpose, aligns the potential for optimal use, else, scattered strengths even if they are significant, becomes in-effective.
