The collapse of SAP today is a big redpointing finger telling us things are turning to shit fast. SAP's growth has a 1 correlation to business investment. Over the last several months the stock had risen back to highs in anticipation that the EU zone and the US have opened up. Today that got turned on its head. Sure things have opened up to some extent but NO ONE is spending money on IT other than some narrow areas. No idea when this starts to get better, but right now it's getting worse. 

Batten down the hatches boys, we could be in for a long and painful one.

­

In April I remember hearing weird countervailing arguments that the lockdown is great for IT in general because now endless tards working from home need IT support. Workplaces need better VPNs, firewalls and expansion to support all the tards. ISPs need to be able to handle tards at home beating off all day watching pornhub and netflix, etc.­

Think it was a flash in the pan maybe. Solid bank for IT helpdesk Apus though.

all IT spending will be cut in the future though, assuming the business is not an IT business.

IT supports businesses. If business slows down, then less IT is needed.

SAP’s growth has been deteriorating for some time.

Who needs H1B's now. They can have them work in India.

Business claims there’s a skills shortage & only importing :apu: can save them.

FWD.us & The US Chamber of Commerce

There are lawsuits for Trump’s recent H1B reforms.  Immigration lawyers are filing suit because the slaves are going to be paid too much.

BTW, re-skilling to the latest & greatest bullshit isn’t going to save your ass.

If you want to dick around with some “skill,” like Linux, do it for PERSONAL INTEREST only.

I bet you saw spending in laptops & such, because people had been pushed home.  Microsoft Teams and/or Slack.

I bet a lot of places hobbled along with their existing VPN structure.

True, it is like trying to hit a fast moving target. A good place will hire a smart person and give them a chance to learn.

Not much to know there. Those apps take care of themselves.

Seconded. Start with the 50-200 EMA crossover and go from there.

By late 40s, you should be in management already.

Or at least project management.    Stop being so fucking lazy.

Not everyone is interested or is cut out to be a middle manager.

Also being a middle manager with a rapidly deprecating skillset is a great way to be on the next round of lay-offs.

You'd be shocked at the consulting being paid for, just to implement Teams.

Most of the managers are gone from my place. Deadweight. They were the first to go. You know, the ones who read of JIRAs at standups. We fucking don't need them.
One "technical manager" guy and the devs are doing "management." They are only keeping the guys who do the hard core coding. Once we leave, the lights are out.

Are you in a startup or something established?

I agree, they really pushed themselves into the business. They aren't perfect but they have an endless supply of bodies at the price companies are ok with. Good luck going into a huge corporation and trying to sell yourself like that.
