BCS run IIS
that sort of stops the credibility dead in its tracks.
The truth is most people in IT don't have a clue about most stuff, and the problem with IT has been the God complex of IT managers, they are not really required in the process. In India they put the worse into IT management, which are still better than the best IT management in the UK.
The actual skills that a lot of UK developers and good Unix admins far surpass most other countries, but where it falls apart is the management tier in the UK, that tends to attract the yes men, and hopefully that is the area being culled currently, be a lot better for the economy.
Developers and administrators need secretaries, and to be left to manage their project and budget, that model works a lot better, the secretary can service a couple of admins and developers, and the result is a better work environment and better tuned projects, that come in on time and on budget.
We often see a little bit of a marketing backlash as they seem to believe they have the ability to make plausible, and usable software, the truth is they don't. I haven't bought one bit of software that hasn't been developed mainly by a developer. It is odd, when the software industry was relatively young I would buy software and it was good, then the marketing lot came and I stopped buying. Now, when I buy I tend to find again there has been no marketing involvement, and the software is good.
So, to me and I suspect a lot of others marketing in IT is a complete waste, get rid of it and cut costs.
