Michael Howard: Embrace of open source is destroying 'artificial definitions' of legacy vendors


Did he catch a bad case of biz-speak?

"Create more velocity in our revenue attainment" = "make more money"

"Jump off a cliff onto new ground" - a fine mixed metaphor indeed. My boss is keen on these, things like "we need to stop climbing the ladder to take a step back and see how far we've come."

"Boosting the quality of service by professionalising people and technology" - what does that even mean?
