"UK businesses will be opening their wallets for new technology after three years of restraint"

They will open their wallets to spend 3/4 of their hardware budget on a "hardware consultant" who will run around telling us we need to replace every single server and PC in use in the business, it'll cost twice what the already empty budget was before he was hired, then be denied by accounts because they don't have enough.

Eventually, after the consultant recommends something cheaper (but usually supplied by his brother in law), one single server will be replaced at 10 times the cost that the in house IT team could have done it for, the consultant will leave forever and the in house team will be chewed out by management for not becoming the supermen that the consultant claimed they would be if the new super expensive server was installed.
