This is the title of a great article i found while searching for some stuff. The ideea that i liked most is:
“Most software tool and technique improvements account for about a 5- to 30-percent increase in productivity and quality. But at one time or another, most of these improvements have been claimed by someone to have “order of magnitude” (factor of 10) benefits. Hype is the plague on the house of software”
Couldn’t agree more.
