As in the MasterCard ad …

Desktop PC : HK$ 5,XXX
Xeon Server : HK$ 21,XXX
Busy Website : Priceless

We can of course buy a lot of PCs, servers and software but it will all probably add up to be just an ordinary IT system … not necessarily a successful IT system. But let’s define what is a successful IT system – that is, an IT system that can deliver business value. The worst case scenario to us is we can spend all our time in doing something, fixing something, chasing something but not delivering business value. Therefore, we have to think hard for everything we do … how we can add value to ourselves, to our businesses.


No problem is insurmountable. With a little courage, teamwork and determination a person can overcome anything.” – B. Dodge
