1967 the year of 1401 with about three machines one at ESSO, one at BSES Santacruz, and a showcase IBM office at Ballard Estate in Mumbai, was a far cry from the statement in 1943 of Thomas Watson, IBM Chairman, “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” . BSES had a 4k machine supported by punch/reader and printer. There were two guys – a system engineer with an IBM Template and a software engineer trying to squeeze in the characters limited to 4k to make the output – payroll and inventory a workable monolith.

Where does Governance exist?

Extract from the book: Inactivity Based Cost management: Measurement of Intangible: Governance, Ethical & Fiscal Responsibility and Acountability

Where does Governance exist? The interesting quote of Robert Doniger, [from Timeline by Michael Crichton], I’m not interested in the future; I’m interested in the future of the future, possibly has a clue. To-day was the future of yesterday and tomorrow is the future of to-day as well the future of the future of yesterday. Effectively what Doniger says is that he dwells in the past all the time the fascinating historical events and ever interested in tomorrow, a dreamer and a maverick he is, that he ignores ‘to-day’ completely. Working like a beaver, he takes his scientists and cultural experts to the past making them stuck in the ruins of history and the genius that he is, promises a great future of the future making the people of to-day to sit in awe and wonder till they realize the future ever remains a distant dream. A solar view of the planet displays the monumental towers everywhere, promises that are not kept. These towers represent a cost already incurred that cannot be recovered. Donigers do not think that it is necessary for them to be concerned about to-day and not at all obliged to inform or discuss the cost consequence of their action, where to-day represents the effect of decisions of yesterday for all to see with utter helplessness.
