Today's Software Consultancy Environment
Throughout the U.S., there is a great demand
for trained and experienced staff in all areas of Information
Technology. In this environment many companies, even those
with little or no experience in IT, are attempting to supply
people to meet this need. But a wide gap exists today between
the promise of quality, affordable cost and responsiveness
and the reality of "delivery" on these fronts. Vendors promise
all these, but deliver partial solutions. Frequently it is
