Being the owner of any digital asset (product, system, application, platform…) within a large corporate typically means making do with inadequate annual budget opex and inadequate people (in both numbers and capability) until the thing you own is so rundown that you obtain a large gob of project capex to try to clear the technical debt, which usually results in the decision to do a rip-and-replace which only causes new unfamiliar disruption and technical debt so you declare victory and move on (either internal or externally) to leave somebody else to manage the resulting mess instead because corporate politics is about sufficing, the lowest common denominator of management consensus, the art of the possible, so this pattern will repeat ad infinitum unless somebody in charge eventually decides there has to be a better way. </rant>
