The NPfIT in 5 years?

Anonymous Comment on the National Programme for IT on Silicom.com yesterday [9 March 2009]:

 “When the NAO have raked over the NPfIT remains in 5 years it will be no-one’s fault, the NHS will be muddling along with their pre-NPfIT systems, they will have a bucket load of hardware, a swanky new broadband WAN, and a bill of £20bn for pretty much bugger all.”

This is a little unfair. The NPfIT in five years will surely have proved an interesting case study for other parts of the world, particularly the USA. As GBS said of parents: “If you must hold yourself up to your children as an object lesson, hold yourself up as a warning and not as an example.”
