I think you could very easily replace "techology" with "system" in the quote above and come up with a great description of enterprise IT. A long period after the implementation of any software, be it bespoke or off-the-shelf, there is going to be lots of messing until its settled into its environment.

Quite a few of my clients have hit that point right now, and they're all about to panic as they realise that things aren't quite as easy as they envisaged.
