I was somewhat amused to read today that Barclays Banks’ computer systems have gone titsup again. In fact looking at El Regs stories it seems like an almost monthly occurrence.
Barclays have been very aggressive on forcing rate cuts on contractors in the past and are currently in the midst of another round of IT layoffs.
It’s hard [doh – edit] not to believe their sole focus on cost and ignoring quality and experience has had no impact on their less than stellar performance these last few months.
I assume senior management bonuses are unaffected by the cost cutting…
