re: Bank of America: Building A Sleeker, More Efficient Bank
The healthcare exchange mess is hard to believe. We know how many people don't have health insurance, so any business would expect to see a spike of user traffic on the first day. If the outages were confined to one exchange, it might be ok. But it seems that many of the exchanges are having trouble. It is capacity/load planning at a very basic level.

It's too bad the developers of the federal government healthcare exchange website did not read this article prior to the launch of the exchanges on Oct. 1, so they could have heeded O'Connor's statement: "I still remember the weekends we met debating 'go or no go,' and the plans and discussions we had with senior leaders of the business.They were all completely involved and wanted nothing more than to make sure we were getting it right and not just getting it done." Politics aside, the fact that the gov't system was not ready for primetime is not good for consumers OR for the exchanges. Similarly, no bank of any size can afford to have a core system not perform as expected.
