Submission + - Navy Almost Ready to Torpedo NMCI (

NecroPuppy writes: The US Navy finally finds themselves in sight of the end of their contract with NMCI.. Depending on who you ask, the Naval Marine Corp Intranet (acronym explained so you don't have to come up with your own meaning), has been the best thing to happen to the Navy, a massive waste of taxpayer money, a less than useful implementation, or a massive boondoggle. Possiblly multiple of those at the same time. A bit of history, before people start laying all the blame on HP: EDS (who started the contract) was originally a standalone company that was only recently bought by HP. (Not that HP has done much better with the contract.)

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
