    Default It's all our fault!

    UK firms feel they are paying through the nose for IT contractors and it is hindering their own staff development, according to research released by integrator Morse.

    Think I may just add a comment to the article!

    However a large number of respondents – 71 per cent – reported that they found it difficult to hire people with the right skills and experience. IT departments are also finding it difficult to transform the skills sets of their staff, as they don’t have the time or capacity to provide them with training, with 72 per cent of respondents believing a skills shortage was holding back their IT department and preventing it from taking on projects which would improve the company’s bottom line.
    Hmmmmm, who the f**k is this morse outfit anyway?

    Hmmm, sounds like their "survey" was nothing more than a marketing exercise given their background.

    Pinch of salt, anyone?

    I've had a couple of run-ins with Morse as well, and Minestrone is absolutely right.

    There was a group of us in a place and I they pissed the client off, we got stuck in the middle and left to take the ill feeling. Mainly the client's fault but Morse could have handled it far better. They convinced the client to take on a group of developers when they knew there was no work so we ended siting about doing nowt. I think they sacrificed a long term relationship for short term gains. I was told to monitor log files for a few weeks, just ended up not doing it.
