Thread regarding Sungard Availability Services layoffs

Our products

It seems to me that those at the top care more about everything other than having a product that someone would want to buy?
They don't seem to have any vision at all. Without a good product it is impossible to hope for anything good. It is sad how this company is managed.

"We could be getting some good news. Somebody in another thread said that a new recovery automation initiative is being discussed by the leadership."

Wow, that is good news. I'm getting kind of pumped up about this. Really, a new recovery automation, they should be announcing this soon. Somebody here also reported that the company could go through a new branding change. It's like Sungard is suddenly coming to life. I hope this is all true.

We could be getting some good news. Somebody in another thread said that a new recovery automation initiative is being discussed by the leadership. If all goes well, this could lead to a new product line with major hiring. Supposedly there’s even discussions about revamping the San Ramon office with Silicon Valley talent. If true, the company can be back in serious action.This is the positive energy that SG needs.

Any company worth their salt wants nothing to do with a company that has had nothing but layoff year after year and a bankruptcy. You could have magic server pi-y dust and companies will still run the other direction. SG was done 4 years ago at best. Nothing is going to bring it back. And that's a sad thing when you look back at what SG used to be. Top of the food chain.

The only retention tactic that Sungard has seen work is stocking the candy machine in the 401 cafe.

That's a laugh. The only people we can su---r into signing up have absolutely no idea what they want, nor how to attain it. Couple that with a willfully-ignorant design team and you've got a great recipe for chaos. The days of innovation are dead and gone - nobody wants to pay for it, and they're mostly too dense to understand it anyway.

There have certainly been voices in recent years pointing out many of the problems, but those voices rarely seem to be heard, and those people don't tend to stick around for very long for one reason or another.

It seems like there's a small handful of people who tend to shut down any thoughts toward real progress because they believe they already know better. They say things like... We have already committed to some other thing, or This won't work, or That's too expensive, or Nobody would buy that, or This is the way we've always done it.

Even worse, it feels like those people squashing the ideas are "protected" somehow, leading a charmed life and avoiding all the layoffs. That needs to change, and soon, if the company intends to survive and possibly thrive again someday.

Get out in front of your customers. Have a conversation and ASK them what THEY need and what THEY want... and then LISTEN TO THEM.
