Re: I love Gartner. In Canada we had the SARS epidemic
Management asked our software group to consider what should be done if SARS started to spread through the town. Our group was able to define what could be done by working from home. We felt the biggest problem would be getting management to declare an internal emergency to focus on production support and stop all development. We hoped, assumed, that contract developers would be still willing to work from their homes on production support if they were still being paid.
