I just came across a statistic which may be useful when building a
case for SW tech in the enterprise:

[[
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is defined as the uses of
software and computer systems architectural principles to integrate a
set of enterprise computer applications.
]]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterprise_Application_Integration

If you scroll down to "EAI Pitfalls", it begins:
[[
70% of the time EAI projects fail.
]]

It goes on to suggest most of the problems are managerial, not
technical. But to my eyes, a lot of the "bear traps" listed in that
section could be at least alleviated using SW tech.

Cheers,
Danny.
