Government Driving Need for Agile Computing?

I read with interest that strategic BPM company Handysoft published a survey showing that 2/3 of European Banks are set to miss the MiFID deadline.

Could this be because the regulators have still not finalised the detailed MiFID requirements?

Is this yet another example of a great European idea, with a fixed deadline for compliance, but a lack of clear direction?  One of the articles above points out that IT teams are still awaiting final details before “pressing go” on their projects to achieve MiFID compliance.

This is an eye opener for me.  I thought that agile computing was a means to competitive advantage.  In fact slow and unclear direction from regulatory bodies can make agile computing essential for compliance purposes, given the very short period of time in which to comply.

That doesn’t seem fair does it?
