FROM STEVEN B. PATTON, via e-mail: I enjoyed the comments regarding IBM Global Services' support (or lack thereof) of the iSeries platform but it missed a few key points that might have helped readers better understand IGS's position: <snip> 3. The lack of focus on the iSeries platform was more due to the shortage of iSeries-fluent college graduates than any business strategy. The two IBM groups cited in the article, IGS iSeries Services and the Custom Technology Center, were staffed with experienced iSeries experts from the Rochester plant and lab. In order to maximize IGS's profits, they preferred to staff projects with lower-paid recent college graduates. ===> food for thought.... What a lame (but probably true) excuse....
