Sounds like Darpa, however
I am aware of a project whereby, small piezo electric sensors can send out a small wireless signal, this is meant to be used as a sort of embedded building telemetry. How about that then..... Can I have my funding?
Anybody building anything in a Quake zone?
with a bit more detail!
Nice. Could not agree more with your comments. However surely now there is enough 'band aid' technology to cover legacy systems protection; after all these systems have now seen the maturity cycle?
Need a new coat...
Nice euphemism. David Threlfall doesn't have as many issues.
Yes, of course vulnerability testing is required and necessary, but then, shouldn't this be part of the design phase and considered in the selection process of various technologies and determinate of the structure of an organisation?
Iterative rather than breakthrough
Closed mind thinking. Lets be honest, there is more to concern ourselves with. With many financial vehicles constrained and almost at the yard, recomposing toxicity, delivering 'hardened' capitalist economies with separated risk without overt control is the main priority, never mind sticking some wires in the ground. Applaud Mandelson for his play at the table.
Wimax isn't the answer, but will provide some much needed innovation in tired and coralled industries. As for my significant innovations, I can't challenge alone, I and others try but the incumbents work in mysterious ways, not all of them gentlemanly.
Naive, no. Transcendent yes.
Back to Lilliput folks.
Technicolour, cos it fits!
With many of the comments cited here, althought there was a point in which the outsourcing was supported with accounting practices and nuances that supported wholesale transfer. The outsourcer generally has no appetite to deliver all the client 'needs' as their relationship is commercial and not necessarily for the operational business benefit, [sic] partnership. Shell Oil deal is something to be interested in as they have kept their management functions in house and used delivery partners for the high activity/touch programmes of work.
Increasingly with these functions outsourced 'Change Management' and organisational development work becomes stifled and more cumbersome to deliver and as a result receive the benefits thereof.
Having worked in several postions as an outsourced worker, in-house resource and consultant party to both single source and multivendor arrangements, I have yet to see a solution which is ideal.
Mines the technicoloured dreamers one...... Or black leather trenchie; depends on the rate.....
