If You Need An Operator, Dont Phone Lehman
Spencer got a tip the old-fashioned way last week: from a person cowering in a phone booth.Spencer got a tip the old-fashioned way last week: from a person cowering in a phone booth. According to the tipster, Lehman Bros. is not pleased with the IP telephony system the company installed last summer. "Disastrous" was how the caller described it, as she pumped coins into the phone. For example, on several occasions, the company found itself without phone service for as long as 30 minutes. "They should have had the folks from Cisco set it up for them," said the Katt crony, as the operator requested more cash. "Cisco claims they have 34,000 employees on IP phones now, and theyve already replaced 100 of their PBXes with their own IP communications technology."
The chief of security for El Gatos posse was checking out the CSI showthe Computer Security Institute conference, that isat the Chicago Hilton last week when he noticed that BMC was giving away shirts that read "Certified by SAP" on the front. Unfortunately for the software maker, a buzz started among attendees that the T-shirt was false advertising and that BMC may not have met SAPs rigid standards. "Any attendees who doubt BMCs claim should simply check out SAPs Web sitethe company is clearly listed as a partner," said the friend of the Furball.
