Systems Integrators - Today's Master Tailors
Conclusion: The need for systems integration skills in organisations that keep their IT processing in-house and those that use external service providers will continue to grow and increasingly be a differentiator in services offered to clients. Managers who do little to enhance the skills of professionals engaged in systems integration activities will be doing themselves a disservice and run the risk of losing their highly marketable staff.
