IPSOFACTO says GIGO. That’s an old term for Garbage In – Garbage Out. I guess the other expression is Penny wise, Dollar Foolish. Like in previous articles, IT is strongly correlated to Operating Budgets, which is usually why a CFO is overseeing IT (That’s smart!). If the operating budget for Administration is, say, $3,000/day. Then three days without being able to work (which is, btw, 99% uptime), costs $9,000, and who knows the cost of labor for repairs- maybe another $5,000?. So when you go cheap, you pay more; in IT, it’s too delicate to mess with going cheap. Be a smart executive and don’t go cheap.
