A non-scientific survey: what kinds of IT Projects are you working on?

I have been posting a lot about my own experience with IT Projects,but time for something different. I want to get a feel for what kindsof IT Projects people are really working on. My experience says it willlikely be maintenance/enhancement over development, and likely involvea COTS package.

But now that I am out in the consultant world, my experience willnot be the same anymore, so I would like to hear from anyone about whatkinds of projects you are involved in. Domain is not important (unlessyou think it is), and no secrets or proprietary info needed.

Let’s see, the last project I was on before becoming a consultantwas in fact a delivery of a new system,  but using a COTS package toreplace a previously developed in-house system. Before that, it wasthree years of releases to that in-house system.

What say you all?
