Just found out the budget for our new server environment. It was approaching £500k.
-£250k for the machines
-£150k for the licences (we’re moving to a bigger version of the capital modelling software we use)
-£100k (approx) on consultancy / getting it all set up and connected
I reckon I’d even work on Friday afternoons if instead of forking out £500k on new kit, they’d pass it on to the staff…
