  • Complex Process Maintenance
  • Endless Scope Creep
  • Disjoined or no metadata

  • High Cost associate with enhancements
  • Long timelines to deliver on Business needs
  • And the list goes on

It seems like it's a constant balancing act, a never ending story with the Business always knocking on the door asking for more !!
