Per the Obamacare Web Disaster: Many of you know I develop websites just like this for a living. It's what I do.
I am here to tell you, given three years that they were given, if I had the following team: One artistic Design person, One skilled DBA, one skilled Security guy, one Web/Data integration specialist, three skilled developers (2 on .NET and one on jQuery), one Business Analyst who knew the legislation, and one Policies and Procedures person (for the ATO and C&A certifications and documentation) and me as Architect, I could have had this thing deployable and humming along on Oct 1.
Yes, the scope would be larger because of the multiformat data exchanges with other Federal agencies..... but that is why I assigned one guy for Web/Data Integration. He'd have three years, and I would ALSO take this strategic move:
I would launch a web service, secured, where they could both retrieve and deliver data. THEY would need to meet MY interface requirements. Thusly I would leverage their people, costing us less. My Web/Data Integration specialist would then only have the task of retrieving the data from the secure web service repository, and shuffle it where it needs to go.
I could have done with with 10 good people. See, I've DONE systems of this complexity before. My estimate of man-years is accurate. We'd have 30 man-years, plenty of labor necessary to accomplish this.
10 people. Let me re-emphasize that.
I would not have charged 300 million, I would have charged 12 million -- maybe even 15!.... and we would have all gotten EXTREMELY wealthy on it.
This does not include hardware and the people to set that up. Figure 20 million for that.
Because this Obamacare website is such an ongoing disaster, I am compelled to creativity.
I HEREBY COIN THE TERM:
It means nothing in the long run.
What Deathcare is about is getting it entrenched so it becomes impossible to undo.
Just like the Progressive Income Tax, you hear the Uniparty, I mean GOP, talk about lowering it, but when was the last time you heard about outright trashing it?
And when you do there are those on the "Right" who have a cow and say "no no don't be hasty"
Except this is far, far worse, because this is the government DMV literally in charge of your health.
Lenin said the key to a Socialist state is healthcare.
I know DBA’s at work who say the same thing. I caution them though, we are talking about government and shifting requirements that would render any normal plan moot. Once they got their fingers in it, all “normal” design plans would be out the window. Failure to comply means you’d lose the contract and probably not get paid for work done.
But you and I know it could be done for (relatively) minimal cost.
Frankly Scarlett I would prefer the more accurate CLUCK.
But Hey, you are running the show and you seem to know what you are doing so...
But thanks for this...I believe all of what you say.
Isn’t it likely then that most of the money spent on this “fusterclick” found its way into the offshore bank accounts of certain individuals and campaign coffers? Politicians never miss a chance to fleece the taxpayers.
That would most likely be the agenda hidden by the fustercluck. Ain’t government wonderful.
Absolutely. This was—to a large degree—a money laundering op for the dims. One of the main dudes at CGI is a bundler for Obammy.
I would start with “cluster”.
Laz, your healthcare website would have been peopled by healthy and pretty ladies.
Who's gonna screw in the lightbulb?
Precisely. The Web-based Solyndra. It doesn't cost 2/3 of a billion dollars to put up a website.
You failed to include Michelle’s schoolmate and her company. Gee, do you think that had anything to do with this ... ?
Two really tiny fleas.
What we said when we said what we said was FUSTERCLICK. Period.
(But, of course that's not the goal)
