Eventually the people in charge are going to realize that any kind of financial institution is basically a database on the internet that holds and exchanges account information. And then they're going to turn ghostly white as they realize all these strangers are touching the equipment that, in a very real sense, IS the bank, er, financial whatever...or worse, those strangers OWN the equipment that IS the financial gobstopper.

And then, at least in finance, outsourcing IT will be seen as a form of insanity.
