Clearly the citizen is a major stakeholder in Government IT projects. As such one might expect that answers could be provided to simple question that are very relevant to the citizen such as:
– are there any sex offenders teaching at my child’s school?
– is my brother in custody somewhere and if so where?
Unfortunately the answers are not available – neither to the public nor to the Government. Why?
I don’t have THE answer although from sources close to the IT projects concerned I can tell you that noone is focused on doing small simple things and delivering them qucikly. What I call incremental development.
