I work for a large public sector institution. We have about 30 developers. Our code base is about 2 million lines of code. It's been custom developed over about 12 years.
New CIO wants to gradually replace it all with vendor solutions, 3rd party apps. Reasoning being is that they want their apps to do more and more and feel 3rd party (SAP/PeopleSoft/etc) can do it faster. They state that they won't need to let anyone go, since the new system to replace this one will be doing so much more there will be a need for programmers to do an maintain integration code.
I'm a developer, what is the end scenario here? More developers? Less? All outsourced?
Are there case studies of similar transitions?

the right trousers.
I've heard that it's possible to get exact duplicates of items of clothing from Indian sources, and would like to know if anyone has any experience of thus or can recommend anyone. I have two pairs of trousers that I love, fairly distinctive, that I wish I could get duplicates made of. if I can just post them to someone and get copies back by return that would be awesome.
