    Our IT networks and infrastructure are growing increasingly complex, to the point that no one can truly understand them. Why do we try to keep up the illusion that we do? It’s time to adjust our expectations, and those of the boardroom, and more effectively communicate that this the new reality. And how does any of this relate to navigation at sea?
