Please Let it Be So

God, I hope this is true.

I am, yet again, working on an internal software development project in which the enterprise did ZERO formal planning.

They used FoxPro to build a multi-user app, but didn't conform to any real design standards. Drop-downs don't work the way drop-downs should. Verbage in window and dialogue titles are confusing. (If you're a web developer, you know the scene!)

They hope, in the next year or two, to change it into an ASP application, but that's going to build-in some seriously immediate obsolescence.

I really hope this kind of I.T. leadership is replaced by the "Architects".
