While complexity is inherent in many software systems, complications should be minimized through effective design, development, and maintenance practices. Embracing complexity without introducing unnecessary complications is key to building robust, scalable, and maintainable software solutions.
Secondary goal of every software development should be to reduce entropy. You can reduce entropy by increasing complexity. But be careful not to introduce complications. Those can diminish your effort and boost the entropy.
Simpler systems are usually more efficient than complex systems.
