Definition Edit

A stovepipe system is a system that is an assemblage of inter-related elements that are so tightly bound together that the individual elements cannot be differentiated, upgraded or refactored. The stovepipe system must be maintained until it can be entirely replaced by a new system. Therefore, over time a stovepipe system typically also becomes a legacy system.

Examples of stovepipe systems:

The term is also used to describe a system that does not interoperate with other systems, presuming instead that it is the only extant system.
