so yet another CIO has been shown the door and IBM have been told to depart, finally (I think that was the week the shares went up...) - yet all discussion of such topics seems verboten. It's the elephant in the room, and affects the day to day existence of every employee that taps a keyboard or whatever. It's cost a damn fortune to get nowhere, completely not made people's lives easier (somewhat not like the ads that IBM used to run on TV!) and who knows what awaits in terms of potential damage to intellectual property once they've left the building. So, discuss. If you read this board and your life has not been affected adversely by "working together", you are a rare thing indeed!
