re: IRS Database System Makes Tax Deadline, Finally
This article is total fiction and how Schulman thinks he can get away with this nonachievement statement is astounding. The individual Master FIle (IMF) is still processing tax returns; it was converted to run on a daily basis instead of weekly (something that could have been done 20 years ago). There is no relational database that works as stated. There is a relational database that the IRS is "attempting" to load using Informatica--at the end of each daily porcessing cycle using IMF data. However, this RDMBS is not used for anything--because they can't even load it correctly.

Take a real bow shulman!!!

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
