Why the Software Industry is sucking more and more

With inflation and pollution come ignorance and even more confusion...

To begin with, the A in the ABC of software production:

It is not about doing it right, it is about doing the right thing!

Software is about the conceptual side and only marginally about the technicalities. About using our mind, sensibility and intelligence to provide a reliable and competitive product and service to people.

This is certainly clear to our customers: information technology is a wonderful tool, yet an enabler, never a driver. This is seldom clear to present-day software managers and even developers, who should rather realise that the matter in question is predominantly conceptual even at the lowest levels.
