  1. Describe horizontal and vertical IT portfolio management
    integration strategies. Then address foundation building, innovation,
    and automation as complementary strategies to horizontal and vertical
    integration. What are the future trends in IT process integration?
  2. There have been many pricing strategies for commercial
    off-the-shelf (COTS) software maintenance, but typically 15–30 percent

    maintenance of COTS software.

    • How does this relate to in-house maintenance of an in-house developed software application?
    • Have you seen any figures on maintenance of open source software implementations?
    • Does the expense of software maintenance continue to grow? What
      is the impact of software maintenance on the IS development budget?
  3. What are the most current figures on failure rates of IT and software development projects?
    • Have the figures gone up or down in the past 10 years?
    • Do the figures surprise you?
    • To what do you attribute these failure rates?
