Purchasing Mistake 7 - Only The Dearest

 

 

Some buyers will always choose the dearest software supplier.  (See - About Potential Customers / Academia Man - with no common sense).  In the early days of computing, when there were only mainframe computers, the leading manufacturer who cannot be identified, but whose name begins with “I”….   and ends with “BM”, was often quoted as the best hardware supplier.  As IT systems became as much dependant on software as well as hardware, there were still the die hards who continued to say that if you chose this manufacturer, then you had not made a wrong decision.  Choosing the dearest software for any application is simply an extension of this opting out of a proper evaluation of all possible contenders.  

 

Having said that, the author of Trimloss was initially trained by the company whose name begins with “I”….  and ends with “BM”, who extolled the computer design features originated by Alan Turing, the “Father of Computing”.
