The term failure comes from the verb fail . This, in turn, refers to the frustration (when a claim or a project is spoiled) and at adverse result in a business. Specifically it is considered that this term emanates from the Italian word I will fail which can be translated as "crashing" or "breaking".
A failure is, therefore, a pitiful event, unexpected and dire , as described in the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) . On the other hand, the concept allows naming the fall or ruin of something with a crash and break .
