    Does any body know about a software which caused a cost overrun after implementation and execution as a failure. I am looking for an example of an unsuccessful software which made the condition worse in a business rather than making it better.

    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.
