Oh doughnuts. Doughnuts are important in our IT organization. It's a rule, FNGs aren't called by their name until they buy the team doughnuts. The rule may as well be written in stone. It's also a rule you can't tell the FNG the rule until day 3.

It's a team building thing.

Still, doughnuts are important. The servers run on them.

Your crew sounds like a bunch of pricks.

Yeah, but when you finally get a name, we take you out to dinner and drinks on us. To live with such assholes!

Pfft, "on us" means you have to eat and drink your meal on our naked bodies. Don't order the bratwurst.

What? Never worked for a .com before?

No, we don't have .coms in WI.

...and yet you know the "dinner on me" trick. Interesting. On server naming conventions, are you familiar with the Asynchronous Naming Universal System?

Oh, I worked for Epic Systems (software company) so the "on me" trick is known to me. The Asynchronous Naming Universal System is ok until it is mixed with oil.


That's not remarkable.

Di Atribe: mxwjs: they almost never keep up with their end.

Almost NEVER? I'd say they keep up their end more times than not. Think about all of the things that continue to work & make your life easier on a day to day basis. Road repairs, trash pickup, police presence, fire departments, zoning regulations, water treatment. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. If you truly know better how to spend that money, then I'd suggest running for office. If not, then vote & write your politicians. But for godsakes quit biatching into the ether about shiat you know nothing about.


the funny this is most of those things are private where i live ( not that that makes it better or is even relevant ) my comment wasn't saying that the gov't fails at doing everything. they simply fail to do things even reasonably efficiently. blindly giving them more money doesn't help. i do vote. i don't tell people how to do their jobs ( why would that be something i would have to do? ) i don't biatch into the ether (because it doesn't exist ). i simply said just giving people more money doesn't fix stuff. an obvious statement.

An IT friend of mine happened upon a group of people from a company he worked for a few years ago. One of the newbies asked something to the effect of "Is it true you used to respond to service calls the same day?" He was a legend, now lost in the mists of outsourced IT. Average response time, 3 weeks. Sure, engineers often lose a few weeks of productivity and miss deadlines but that's the cost of modern business.

Seems my friend would do things like order replacement parts for next day delivery so people could get back on task right away. Somehow, the extra $30 was seen as a grand inefficiency. Afterall, they were paying the engineer regardless so it wasn't seen as an incremental expense if they waited a few days to be productive again.

That's modern business theory for you.

Both sides need each other.
IT needs business for the $$, business needs IT to get shiat done. If they think IT doesn't do anything, IT is doing the job right, because they keep stuff up and seem to be invisible.

mxwjs: i simply said just giving people more money doesn't fix stuff. an obvious statement.


It does when there's more stuff to fix. Consider that there will be more and more computers in any one setting, and more and more people using them. The demands on the systems those machines are linked to will increase. Those machine will also cost more to purchase, maintain and upgrade, as well as the systems they are plugged into.

Why is it that people seem to think that even though they can see prices rising on everything they purchase, from cantaloupes to coffee makers, that they actually expect expenditures made by governments on behalf of their people to remain static? Do you not think what it costs them increases as well? And it's not just prices, it can also be an increase in what they have to buy to meet the needs of their community. More people = more stuff that needs to be done = more money.

Right now where I live the local county board is hearing a bunch of anti-tax morans whine and b*tch about "moar taxxes" with no clue as to how much more it costs the county to provide the services they want so much. Increased fuel costs for county vehicles (which go through thousands of gallons every month), increased food costs for school districts (which go through thousands of pounds of food a week), increased energy costs for heating and cooling any building they own, none of those things seem to matter to these idiots.

Somehow, the price of everything in the private sector can go up all to hell (free market at work and all that sh*t), but what governments spend should never do the same, as if they are somehow immune to those same forces. Too much cost-cutting in the name of "efficiency" and you get people running Windows 2000 server on 486DX machines with 14" 256 color CRT monitors.

.


Quoted for truth. if you aren't seen as a department which 'makes money' for the company, then you are expendable. Companies (and government entities) then go through the process of seeing how much they can get away with and still amass paying customers. You don't even have to worry about hemorrhaging the old customers, as long as you keep getting new ones in the door. Turnover and attrition is just business, instead of something to actively lower through superior service.

The new customers come to expect shiat service as the norm, because they don't know any better. Old customers who want to leave, but don't know how to leave, and/or are themselves stuck on 'it costs money to do it better when what we have is good enough', keep paying for shiat service. Everything turns to shiat. The few profit.

The poor try inefficiently to be part of the few who profit.

Any actual citations to back this rhetoric up? Companies and governments always overpay for contracting work done and it's usually half assed. Just ask troops electrocuted when they take showers thanks to shoddy "private" contracting work. I bet it's efficient though. And cost less!

Obvious plan is obvious:

1. Demonize the public sector saying they're lazy and foster an 'us vs them' attitude with the general public. Accept applause when layoffs happen.
2. Let systems fail, because everyone is overworked. Point and say "See, I told you they were lazy, that guy gave up after only 80 hours this week!!"
3. Give a contract to your sister's husband's cousin's company to "come in a clean the mess", costing 4 times what it would have cost to keep the staff on from the layoffs.
4. Profit, and laugh at all the sheep.

Well, well....

I'm convinced that SAP get blowjobs for CEOs. I've not met a single person that endorses it, or a user that finds it better than the old in-house legacy system.

It's also my "should I avoid investing in this company" because I know 3 companies that got it in and within a few years, their share price was much lower. I'm not necessarily saying that SAP caused it so much that if you've got management that buy SAP, you've got the wrong sort of management.

I reckon you could go with Oracle and see how they do. They'll rape you, stick you with the bar tab, and then complain you didn't pay for the hotel room.

The problem with business process software isn't the software. It's that it's all about business process. If you have a hard time fixing processes in a manual world, software isn't going to solve it - in fact it'll more likely magnify the problem.


Oh, so very true. CSB, worked as a senior consultant in state (shall remain unnamed) government. Took 2 weeks to realize everyone knew they were incompetent and didn't care - it was the defacto standard of the department. Also learned that no one (I mean NO ONE) wanted to discuss business processes, business logic, implementation, or any of the strategy for the projects I was working on. Why? They didn't have the knowledge necessary to bring anything to the table. Their view was 'Write the code - make it work - don't bother me with thinking'. Got a great laugh watching them scratch a 25 million dollar project, because they didn't understand the business processes involved, plus although the canned SW in question was working successfully in four other states, they want mucho 'custom development' to support business processes they never defined. Since then, 90% of management has retired, at 90% of their bloated, undeserved salaries.

Yes, yes it is.


No, no it isn't. It's symptomatic of management that doesn't listen, pays themselves bonuses and lets the hardware/software shrivel up and die. Just completed a full refresh for a client that didn't listen to their previous admins....The admins quit. Ignored every shred of data about best and critical practices and so their email servers wouldn't stay up more than a day or two and when one went down their other clusters soon followed. 18 hour days of firefighting....every day. Oncall was pure hell.

tgambitg: optikeye: Ika7734: IT is doing the job right, because they keep stuff up and seem to be invisible.

If you do your job correctly, you're invisible and everything just 'works' and they don't see the need for you and infact for most the time the equipment doesn't need you either as it's stable and working just fine with autoscripts etc.

Occasionally, reach over to the server and turn the power off. Wait for calls and then "OMG, I'm right on it...it should be back up in 30 mins." Take a smoke break switch it back on and you're a god.

A good, well trained, properly funded IT department is like the Fire Department... There when shiat needs done, but they should be bored when it's calm.


Best described as hours of endless monotony intersected by moments of pure panic. If your IT department is bored, be grateful.

rohar: My team is running 20 "servers" per employee. I put server in quotes because many of them are multiple boxes behind load balancers. If we include ALL the employees of the company from HR to helpdesk we're still at about 10 servers per employee.

Of course, we wouldn't make the mistake of firing the DBA before we turned the lights out for the last time.


We're running about 60 servers per admin. Though that's not really accurate. My responsibility is virtualization (including VDI) and storage (EMC Clarion and Symmetrix). While I can and do the WinDoze and linux stuff, it's not my primary responsibility. We have 2 guys that do AD/Exchange/OCS/Windows. 1 SQL Server DBA, 1 Backup/Windows, and one Storage/VMware guy (though he's transitioning all the storage responsibilities to me...he backs me up on VMware). We have 2 network guys, 1 security guy (CISSP, firewalls, etc), and one monitoring guy (though the monitoring guy is really helpdesk/deskside support).

The point is that you can run MORE efficiently with less staff if you pay the money for infrastructure.

Sounds like the place I'm going to be leaving as soon as I find another job. Last year we moved from Altiris to SCCM but do you think they hired anyone who knew SCCM? Now imaging a new system takes about 3 hours (because most of it doesn't work and it's faster to install everything manually) and start to finish, a new user takes 5 hours to set up start to finish. I had 18 new users to set up last week in addition to my regular tier 2 desktop support duties on my share of 600 users.

I could go on and on... A little bit of me said to "stop whining and suck it up" until my boss quit. GTFO time indeed.

I wish my IT department understood this. I've said for years that they think the rest of us exist to provide them with IT jobs. That's our purpose: require desktops, servers, network, etc so they have jobs.

To be fair, they're probably as understaffed as the rest of us. My department is one resignation away from a meltdown. It isn't a bad company, but it isn't amazing, either. I think more and more people are biding their time until they can find something better.

Sozialistischen
Arbeiter
Programmierung

Stress
And
Pressure

Shutup
And
Program

Stupid
Ass
Processing

I no longer work in SAP, haven't for years. Recruiters still call me because it has to be on my resume to avoid a gap for those years. Good thing I am so out of date in that tech I can not pass a interview, it eliminates the temptation to go back for the money. SAP-ers, (ABAPers, BASIS admins, or specialists in the various modules like APO, BW, FI, etc.) earn big bucks because you have to pay high for people to put up with that thing.

All that said, yeah, laying off that big a chunk of staff and not maintaining and upgrading equipment? 1d10ts.

About ten years ago I worked as a retail manager for a smallish company with about twenty superstores. The three managers of my branch, me included, we're having a meeting when we decided it would be a good idea to have a password on a certain function on the computer to stop sales staff accessing it. The branch manager picked up the phone and dialled the number for the head of IT. "Brian" he said "could you put a password on the invoice reprint option on the back office screen?" He heard Brian say "ummm.......... Yeah........... Okay, if you logout and log back in its done"
We did and it was. Brian was great.

CruJones: This is why hosting companies are projected to grow by like 20x in the next few years. Not crap like host gator or something, but real managed hosting.


They projected the same thing 12 years ago; then the dot.coms went bust. In the end, when sanity prevails and adults start running the show, companies want to be in full control of their data. 'Cloud' is just the center spot on the Bullshiat Bingo card.
