The article presents the author's views on the issues related to programs and projects being launched by the information technology industry. The industry is coming with collections of smaller systems that fit into umbrella concepts. While in public sector, the opportunity to have new technology is seen as rare occasion for surfacing all conceivable needs. However, the author observes that transition to smaller and faster systems poses their own challenges to both technologists and management. He describes programs and related issues in detail.
