Introducing the new face of BCS
The British Computer Society (BCS) is to take on a campaigning and IT leadership role in an effort to stamp out the waste, inefficiency and lack of professionalism endemic in IT today.
Speaking in London last week, recently installed chief executive David Clarke said that it was not acceptable that "40% of IT projects fail".
"We are not prepared to sit back and wait, we want to take the lead," he said. "Collectively other organisations have stood back from this. We have a lead independent role to play, to convince companies, government and the market that IT quality is essential." He said the BCS would campaign to take IT professionalism to a different level, "to deliver what we said we'd deliver when we said we'd deliver it, and to budget".
