The Vortex of Information Systems

The Real World

Problem Space



Logical Design

Physical Design


The form of this vortex reminds us that systems are multi-dimentional, multi-faceted, and constantly changing.

The vortex is modeled on the distortion of the fabric of space and time by the gravity of a black hole. Does that sound like building information systems? You bet it does!

But there's hope. With appropriate skills, tools, and methods, we can convert this black hole of unfinished projects into the cycle of creation, implementation, evolution, and re-birth.
