One of my favorite holiday stories is told through Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Maybe it’s the recollection and varying interpretations of the past. Perhaps it’s how it shows what is really present—here and now. Or, it could be the anticipation of future possibilities.
One thing is for sure, no bah humbug here! I decided to take stock in this fable and revisit the local government software and project implementations I've carried out over the past 17 years. What would the ghosts of past, present, and yet to come have to say?
