Re: So...

You are right in your summary. Shipping tends to mean they are being shipped into the warehouses of distributors and retailers. But these companies wouldn't accept the stock if they were not seeing the demand. All analysts, except Context, refer to sales-in.

Re: Don't know they're bourne

Watch it, watch it! Continue with this sort of crap and you'll be out of the comments section for good. Yellow card to you sir! And for the absence of doubt, whine was deliberate. Paul at The Reg.

DXC: Hands up in customer support – who wants redundo?

Paul Kunert


Get your point but IMHO it remains news because the UK government and private sector still have contracts running with DXC and they need to understand what is happening at the company. And more importantly still, it is worth reporting because the hard pressed workforce at DXC should be given a voice as management don't seem to listen.

Hello Doc, I sent you an email about this supposed 20% hike from SAP and didn't hear from you. I've also contacted SAP and a bunch of SAP suppliers in the UK and nobody seems to know anything about it. Do you work for Oracle by any chance? Best, Paul @ The Reg
