With the other well known provider involved I expect the inevitable SNAFU. I would like to use the sarcasm tag if it existed
<Sarc> I for one, welcome our new overlords, whoever they maybe. </Sarc Because we wont have a working Defence Force. Lots of managers though.
Background: DEFMIS was a 1980s attempt to have a single IT and financial provider inside Oz Defence, IBM. Needless to say, Defence already had a working system called Dept of Finance. Mostly it meant bits of paper torn from reports at end of month and attempts to get OS2 everywhere instead of a daily summary of financial activities. A lot of software did not like OS2, perhaps due to Novell being in mix. Workloads went up, processes slower, you know the drill. Rumours of red Ferratis' appearing at Fort Fumble soon after contract signing were not verified.
We need an Oz version of Lewis Page
