There are many valid arguments here for keeping at least something of IT on the inside, such as a burned out drive in a server or something that requires a PHYSICAL hand. Unfortunately, WE SEE THAT!!! The Techrepublic community. Ever notice that nobody in a CTO or CFO position posts here!!! THEY only see the cost, only see the salary expense. IBM has a plan called 2015 where they are gutting the US workforce to send jobs to China and India, two countries that are really not all the friendly to this country. THEY do not see IT as an integral part of the business but only see it as a COST, A LINE ITEM that can be cut dramatically by farming IT to India where, THEY SEE, that all problems can be solved over the phone. THEY KNOW NOTHING of what we are writing about here. BUT THEY CONTROL CORPORATE IT BUDGETS and cut, cut, cut. $2 an hour on India or a day in China. No kidding. AMERICAN MANAGEMENT is blind, stupid and dumb but it is "cheaper,faster,better" in India, isn't it. RIGHT????
