Flashback to the 1980s, when computer-aided software engineering methodologies are all the rage for major mainframe software projects, according to a pilot fish in the know.
“A friend of mine was a software developer at a big Chicago bank, and they were very big into CASE for large projects.” fish says. “Both the bank’s management and the developers were pretty happy with the results for its mainframe work.
“Or they were happy with the software they produced, anyway. But big CASE tools didn’t solve all the system development problems. On one particular project, my friend gave me a running update over the last few months of the project’s schedule.”
