Tactical Nuke

The management term “tactical nuke” seems to mean software systems that are a good non-functional asset but are never seriously meant to be used. I have seen a lot of such systems in the energy industry. This seems to be a symptom of the “post-Enron” economy.

…after all, if they customers would come, we might have to use the system you spent the last year building.
