re: Here Comes Corporate Brain Drain
I hear ya. Actually, what I should have said was, "anybody can do COMMODITY maintenance and operations". Yes, there are moments of truly sublime internal services for M&O -- for example, truly great help desk and associated customer service.

re: Here Comes Corporate Brain Drain
I have to say the this article hits the nail on the head !
Companies should get their best and brightest in a room and ask them what they can do to make them happier and more productive (my bet is that it isn't always more money , more vacation, etc..). Often times it might be "let me innovate", "let me get something interesting done that can help the company as a whole", or "get this impediment out of my way".

re: Here Comes Corporate Brain Drain
You stopped impressing me the moment you stated that anyone can do maintenance. While anyone can do maintenance on their own programs and appllications, it's an entirely different matter to make changes to a program written and maintained by others whose thought processes are very different from yours. Our system has programs that have been patched for 40 years.
