Commerzbank has embarked on a project with consultancy Capco to develop an 'IT complexity model' that can be used by CIOs to measure and then master their organisation's technology.
Well done Commerzbank for acting whilst others "dither".
BUT, as the technology already exists to map, measure, manage and monitor complexity in complex systems [business or biological] and processes, this may be akin to re-inventing the wheel!
...a business that operates with an unknown and unmanaged complexity level is less profitable, less efficient, less predictable, less stable and may lack the flexibility to adapt (and survive) in a competitive and turbulent
Complexity, Risk and Uncertainty carry both threat and opportunity: the former will not dissipate (only increase and add to uncertainty) whilst the latter could be the difference between survival and thriving!!!
