One day when the history of software application usage is written, once key theme that would find a prominent place would be the enormous underutilization/non-usage of substantial number of features developed in IT packages/solutions. This would also include reckless purchase of redundant /overlapping software and the propensity to buy new software every three years/ decide on a new platform with a new strategic IT plan or change platforms with a new IT honcho.
