Sometimes IT managers feel like Santa: lots of kiddies storming their armchair, sitting on their laps, demanding the latest must-have toys. But unlike Santa, IT managers don’t have a secret ice bunker full of unpaid yet highly-skilled elves, nor can they deploy their gifts faster than the speed of light via magic flying reindeer. No. Instead, they’re lumbered with the financial constraints of The Grinch.
