The essential guide to IT transformation

We all know The Register's a bit of an oracle, but it comes to something when we're the first place businesses read about what they're up to. Yet that's exactly what happened to one of our beloved memory distributors this very afternoon. After dutifully logging onto our newsfeed for his daily dose of IT entertainment, (surely you mean news - Ed) Alan Stanley, general manager of Dane-Elec, found his company was the lead story. And what's more, that Dane-Elec had won the honour of qualifying for the Intel Gold scheme, run by CMTL. "I'd just like to find out a bit more about it," spluttered a red faced Stanley. "About what, exactly," we asked, trying not to laugh. "Well, CMTL, for example. Have you got a contact number?" According to Stanley, Dane-Elec was aware it had applied for the prestigious Intel programme, but didn't know it had actually netted the qualification until reading it on our site. "Don't tell anyone, will you?" pleaded Stanley. No problem Alan, your secret's safe with us. Ah, the naivety of the channel. ®
