US Airforce Scraps ERP After 1 Billion... Should have gone with

On a separate note�



*Computer Sciences Corp. Acquires 42Six Solutions, LLC *

Computer Sciences Corp. (�CSC�) announced on October 3, 2012 it has
completed the acquisition of privately-held 42Six Solutions, LLC. 42Six is
a Columbia, Maryland-based software development company that specializes in
big data processing and analytics and advanced applications support for the
U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community. CSC Big Data and
Analytics Vice President Sashi Reddi stated, �This acquisition aligns
directly with CSC�s strategy of offering customers greater value through
big data expertise and intellectual property. 42Six brings some of the most
highly capable developers in the intelligence field to our team and we are
excited at the opportunity to infuse their entrepreneurial spirit into
CSC�s global operations.� Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.



Perhaps a case of �too little, too late�, at least for the Air Force (and
us little taxpayers)?



Regards,
Scott

Politics results in scope creep every time. CSC made out, regardless. Wow.
