Is our software failing us or are we failing our software?
In a recent Linked In article, Geni Whitehouse asked "Why is our Software Failing Us?" Specifically, she argues that we've succeeded only at building "big fat buckets of data" that we are now failing to analyze and that we've lost the promise of automation in our systems.
As I read through the article I didn't find anything that was truly a software issue, at least as it relates to any modern ERP system. What I thought back to was a recent quote from economist Steven Leavitt in a PowerPivotPro article where he said, "People who like to analyze data are the scarcest resource in the business world today."
