dc.description.abstractThis paper introduces the notion that systems develop is not as bad as reported in the literature, but nonetheless there is some room for improvement. It sets out to enhance the outcomes of information systems development. The technique employed is to benchmark systems development against architecture. At first glance one may say that the two disciplines have nothing in common. This concern is shown to be false. In fact there arte many lessons to be learned from architecture.en_NZ
