What 1000 rubles won’t buy
Funny story about politics in Russian business.
Today we learned that the client does not have a tested backup solution. They, purportedly, backup the claims application. That has not been tested. Why? Apparently, the IT group has a server to test with. They have the staff and time. But we’ve been told they need a rack to install the server on. Cost? 1000 rub. ($40 USD) RGS must wait for the next budget period to pay the fee. Each project internally is willing to pay 20% but nobody will pay the full amount. Go figure. So we wait for a backup solution to be tested – for $40 USD.
