That is the exact reason I took this position, a need to understand
how and why this would be done.  I have been here three years and have a
profound understanding as to the hows and whys, but can't talk about them
due to sensitive information clauses.  What I can say is that it works.
      Over my 30 years in IT, I have seen waves of centralize/decentralize.
They both have their merit and work for that situation.  This takes me back
to a IT Strategies I took last year at USI (University of Southern
Indiana).  A company was required to support their customer overseas.  the
customer was local to them here but had a facility overseas.  The way they
decided to do it was to open up a IT center overseas with disastrous
      When I was presented with the same situation, as a manager of systems
support some years ago.  I looked at that the customer had a facility there
and negotiated using their facility for our IT needs and used our local
connection to them locally to allow our people to get to our system.  This
too was trying to set it up, being the tail of a hippo.  But after getting
it set up it worked wonderfully and is still in use to this day.
