Abstract

Initial research presented by the authors in 2003 suggested that a particular area in ICT is excluded from current risk assessment processes - the point where Systems Development (SD) and network engineering overlap. Extensive on-going research has confirmed this gap and risks it poses to both Business Data Communications and SD. The lack of existing relevant literature supports this view. Preliminary results from an empirical survey indicate that neglect of this area allows risks to threaten SD/change.
