Well, in regards to L2 CA support et al, I dont think any of them had
IDMS experience at user sites in the first place. I've heard one of
their managers comment that it's impossible to find local BAL expertise.
I doubt that they'll find it in India either. CA's management, and
Cullinet for that, reasoning has always escaped me, but I think it may
be safe to say that the IDMS folks do not drive CA corporate management
decisions in Islandia.

Re: Is this difficult?
"Personally I think it's salespeak that outsourcing jobs are more cost
effective. An outsourcer's programmer may get a lower rate, but if you
figure in the sales personel, project management, client satisfaction
mangers, and their management levels, an outsourced programmer gets to
be quite expensive. But we are lumping in IDMS programmers with IDMS
DBA's. They are quite separate job skills, and require different
experience levels. In my humble personal opinion, a seasoned IDMS DBA
is worth every penny, and not interchangable with generic units. It's a
credit to the IDMS technology, that the DBMS is stable enough to run
reliably like a Timex, but when a problem occurs or a major change is
required, there is just no replacement for experience. So, my advice to
IDMS'ers is, hang on to your hat, your expertise will be quite valuable
in the future, due to its irreplacable rarity.

"Yes, Chuck, there are notable exceptions. I believe you are one, there
is another, I can think of.
