Right, it’s #RANT time!
What a DUMB industry!
It’s no wonder business leaders find IT so hard
It’s an industry that speaks in tongues
It uses terms like “the cloud” and “digital transformation”
WELL WHOOP DO FFFFFFF DO!
I wouldn’t mind, but the definitions are constantly changing
Wikipedia’s seem to evolve almost daily
One sounds like some ephemeral fantasy land
And the other sounds like we’re living in The Matrix
It’s enough to scare the cr*p out of any even half sane #CEO
Not only that, they sound vague, intrusive and complex
And to cap it all, it’s all about how wonderful the tech is
Super silicon thingies that do a billion things before you even press the enter key
That said, I saw an RPF with phrases like “decoupled platforms” and “flexible ecosystem development”, so I suppose it could be worse
There were so many buzzwords in it I shouted “HOUSE!” and won a cheap weekend in Porpoise Spit
If you want to use some kind of Orwellian Newspeak, be my guest
But I’m far more interested in using modern tools to
Improve efficiency and morale
Deliver a better service
And generate a BIGGER PROFIT PER PERSON
If you’d prefer your IT in plain English too, give me a call
