  • "I’m working up a business case/carrying out a proof of concept for a great new product that I reckon will knock the current best of breed vendor out of the running. They’re currently going stellar in the US, but I can’t say anything more about it at the moment."

    Hilarious.

  • Friends + free drinks = perfect business case.

  • This reminds me of an article in The Onion which rather cleverly satirised 'management speak'. A late April fool's joke, perchance?

  • "We’ve standardised on best of breed products, which keeps total cost of ownership down and systems up. I’ve just outsourced our infrastructure and data centre so I can concentrate on giving our user base a great client-facing service. Our strategy of using the Microsoft stack makes integrating our products seamless."

    Does that even mean anything? Not a very flattering article, for the lady in question or the firm.

  • I dunno, sure there is an element of BS but it makes sense to me. Look at the results not the BS. For a mid-size firm, their technology is in pretty good shape.

  • Good to see the usual anonymised negativity from commentators who don't know what they're talking about, unlike the woman the subject of this article. Perhaps it would be better to have someone going on about how they've changed the gin at the Garrick but for me, not so. And no, I'm not at Lewis Silkin (but I have friends there who are happy with their IT).

    Most of this 'anonymised negativity' refers to the ridiculous management speak uttered by the 'woman the subject of this article'. Why should this not be criticised?

  • Because, Mr McTwatle, you and your ilk are a bunch of corrosive holier-than-thous who serve no useful purpose other than to criticise others for the most minor matters in as self-satisfied and smug a manner as possible. You are however world leaders at this, so the Daily Mail website has taught you well!

  • Hmmm - ok so I agree "the Microsoft stack" for non geeks wasn't the best way i could've put it. Non anon people ribbed me more about the Goethe quote . Tant pis eh?
