ALM company Serena Software loves to talk about three things: customers, software system orchestration and acronyms. Customers should not be a surprise; what IT vendor worth its salt does chant the "customers, customers" mantra deeply, repeatedly and intensively? Software systems orchestration...

It was British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli who coined the phrase, "Lies, damn lies, and statistics..." and given the amount of PR fluff that the IT industry throws up in terms of "shocking new stats", the man was clearly before his time. Only yesterday we saw this story on the...
