Aussie Customs software debacle
Sat, Oct 22 2005 1:32
The Australian Customs launched a new processing system this week. The software originally was budgeted at $33 million dollars, blew-out to $250 Milliona dollars. The system itself seems to be causing huge headaches and major delays. it's also had major security issues such as displaying user information including pricing information to other users. The system was designed to be scalable and secure - yeh right
So what platform was used ? A: IBM mainframe , DB2, and websphere java. Brief specs can be found here.
