Council seeks to untangle IBM's tongue-twisters

You do not need to have mastered C++, or speak fluent HTML to know that most IT speak sounds like gibberish to the uninitiated.
Somerset County Council has rather distastefully highlighted this fact in its dealings with IT partner IBM by formally recording "translating jargon and acronyms into plain English" as a business challenge.
One piece of jargon local government may not struggle to understand is IBM's notion of a "stretch target", which is a "goal that is probably impossible".
Probably impossible goals are a government IT speciality, though the defining of a goal to fail to hit may prove a problem.
