The only certainties in software development are that the application will arrive late, cost more than expected, and fail to meet all of its functional requirements. Based on numerous evaluations conducted by Computer Economics, more than 90 percent of large-scale software applications fail to meet at least one of these goals, and about half of all developmental efforts are abandoned without delivering any useful product. The ever-growing demand for new software, along with increasing complexity of the applications, will only exacerbate the situation.
