Orange and EDS are to make integrating mobile devices easier for enterprise telecoms and IT departments in a new project.
They’re planning on providing an ECO system (Extended Connected Office) to organisations who have doubts about mobile business. There will also be joint product launches and consulting.
I used to work for EDS… let’s just hope they’ve changed since I worked there ! There was a unbelievable amount of red tape, too many meetings to decide the smallest of things (such as the manufacturer of chairs etc) and worst of all – the coffee machine never worked and when it did, you had to pay for coffee! :)
I’ll stop now .. I’m trying not to add my own opinions into this article but it’s all going wrong. Hey, I could tell you about the time that an “area director” came down to the EDS building I used to work at… and I could tell you how he decided to get 300+ staff packed into the break room to give them a “chat” (which wasn’t very big and had no windows to open) .. and I could tell you about how people started feinting and falling on the floor… and then I could tell you how this certain director stepped over the fallen bodies to carry on talking about how people were the most important thing to EDS…. (which is when I decided to leave) .. but I won’t… :)
