It was nice to talk to Mahindra Satyam yesterday about something other than the internal fraud that hit the company last year.
This time it was about the World Cup 2010, in South Africa, and the company’s development of the software that underpins the event. This software manages the activities of hundreds of thousands of workers at the event as well as competitors and supporters. Like the “hand of God” that nobody can see.
While you are sitting comfortable watching England fail again as Argentina, with its Newcastle stars, get a shock tournament victory there is software running the show.
I did try and get some free tickets but I was blanked quite rightly. I think I blew it when I asked for a private jet.
