Techserver reports that companies are at long last starting to doubt the bright-eyed bushy-tailed consultants who tell them how to spend their money. How can you be sure that they are giving an objective viewpoint when their company has vested interests? This reminds me of friends who went to work for A... Consulting, after completing their biology degrees. They told me how much fun it was to tell companies what computers to install, and that this was easy as they were given a book that contained all the answers. They also explained that A... Consulting prefered non-Computer Science graduates, since CS-graduates already had made their minds about how to do things. Better start with a clean slate! All of this fits in rather nicely with companies ditching tried and tested solutions like Unix in favour of Windows.
