Abstract

The Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) and Control Data Corporation (CDC) started the Ubisco project in the early 1970s. The project should have automated all the bank’s operations with a single CDC computer system, but Ubisco failed four years later. Unraveling the reasons behind the project’s failure might help researchers and historians learn why such large computer projects are so often unsuccessful.
