What eloquent design? A design that takes the place, time, people into consideration as well as providing a high quality and practical delivery. Most IT projects are not eloquent. Why? Lack of skill, sweet and simple. We (IT people) tend to focus on function and delivering what’s requested, not what is required and not in a way that anyone would look at and even imagine any form of eloquence. Lack of vision, lack of courage and lack of pride lead us down the road to delivering one road house after another instead of a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece. Should we strive for better? We better start or the constant low quality, narrow focused delivery will continue to feed decisions makes with the confirmation to the idea that IT is no more important and no more critical to business success than the maintenance crew (no offense to the maintenance crew).
