The Staggering Impact Of IT Systems Gone Wrong

IEEE Spectrum is releasing a number of features based around the data they’ve collected over the years in regard to IT debacles. Their first feature lets you compare and contrast the many tech glitches and failures of the last decade via data spheres.

To commemorate the last decade’s worth of failures, we organized and analyzed the data we’ve collected.
