"The Trillion Dollar IT Revolution" recreates the experience of dozens of projects, both successful and failed, to provide a real-world context for learning.

Raj Kosaraju's insight:

Through extensive analysis, It has been discovered that according to a wide range of studies and statistics showing that 30 - 70% of IT projects fail. Financially of great importance is the fact, that the average company has listed "at risk – projects” for 74 million dollars every year.

Raj Kosaraju's insight:

On April 1st of this year, Sánchez spoke at MDC’s Freedom Tower in downtown Miami (where thousands of Cubans fleeing the 1959 communist revolution were once processed, given food and connected with social services).  This was the most anticipated stop on an international tour that took her to three continents after being allowed to leave Cuba for the first time in nearly a decade. 

She has often asked herself why so many people in the world see Cubans inside and outside the island as two separate worlds, two irreconcilable worlds.  She said, in Miami, before a room filled with exiles, “I want to make sure that no one, ever again, can divide us between one type of Cuban (of Fidel) or another (of Miami).”  

Before she left the Freedom Tower, she was bestowed with keys to the city of Miami, likely the only Cuban still living on the island to receive such an honor.
