Farmer Jim

Neighbouring farmers, Farmer Jim and Farmer Hugh both had mouse problems because the mice were eating their stocks of harvested corn.  Farmer Jim resorted to building the biggest, fastest and best mouse trap that he could design, expecting to catch hundreds of mice.  He ended up with three dead mice and no corn left.
Farmer Hugh hired an expert, a cat who resolved the mouse problem and ensured didn’t return, and left the farmer with a barn full of corn.
Moral of this story, you don’t have to be an expert, you just have to hire the right one.

Like the two farmers, IT departments need to be multi-skilled to service the varied demands of users, an organisation’s own systems as well as legal compliance and government legislation.   We’re lucky because over the years we’ve honed our skills in one particular area.  Together with our Mailsafe product we’re experts in email archiving, email migration, mailbox size reduction etc, with specialist skills in moving from Exchange to NHSmail/NHSmail2.  Like the farmer’s cat we supply and provide a solution to a particular problem and ensure that it doesn’t come back.
