According to At Least One Huge Tech Deal WILL Happen This Week, the ‘scuttlebutt’ is that EDS is an undermanaged mess and that big expense cuts are coming. I’m not sure what ‘undermanaged’ means but I guess it is undermanaged in comparison to HP.
I wonder how these expense cuts will work. I hope somebody goes to the trouble of actually identifying the areas where expenses are out of line and cutting the expenses there. However what will probably happen will be that an edict will come down that all groups have to cut expenses by $x so that the groups where expenses are already cut to the bone will be cut down even more.
