re: British Anti-Cartel Regulators Target Government IT
This article is drivel. First, nowhere in the OFT's announcement does it either claim that there is an "Oligopoly" in the market or indicate that it is "fed up" with it.
Second, in contrast to the statement in the article that "big suppliers have become adept at grabbing increasingly larger shares of the pie for themselves", the reality is that over the last ten years or so the market has been getting more and more competitive as new entrants have come in and the market shares once enjoyed by some of the big players have diminished.
It's precisely because supposedly legitimate publications like Information Week publish ill-informed and inaccurate crap like this that the myth that there's an oligopoly at play has been allowed to perpetuate. Shoddy and lazy journalism.
