As I ponder this after listening to the State of the Union Address last night, I have to wonder is the Hackett Group an American company? They must not be, given their anti-American recommendation. It is time to put American IT professionals back to work, innovating, and creating applications that actually work, and support that can be understood, and useful, instead of crappy and frustrating.
As an IT professional, I endure the "offshore experience" daily in less than usable Cisco frontend management apps, unintelligible HP support (from India) and other management related indignities that are the result of off-shoring by traitorous American corporations, bent on making shareholders happy and stuffing executives' offshore bank accounts.
It is time for a change, and we, the American workforce must demand it.
Now, off the soap box, I see virtualization skillsets as important too. So much value and ROI can be gained for our organizations by leveraging those technologies, which will in turn enhance the cloud initiatives that we need to implement.
