Software projects are notorious for having very high failure rates. There could be both technical and non-technical reasons for this. Software engineering with its rigorous and formal processes should be helpful in reducing such failures and helping manage large software projects and leading them to success.
Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, identify, analyze, and explain an incident in which a software project failed. Make sure to highlight the following points:
- What went wrong?
- Why it went wrong?
- What should have been done to avoid such failure?
- Who were the key stakeholders in the project? What was their role in project failure?
- How can software engineering help avoid such cases?
Support your responses with examples.
