Good morning

Today we explore why General Motors has decided to move IT back in-house after years of outsourcing to HP and EDS. The strategy involves a massive hiring drive and an attempt to consolidate from 23 data centres worldwide down to just two.

And new recruitment statistics show IT workers who head to Western Australia are likely to command a 16.8 percent pay premium over the national average as the result of a continuing skills shortage in mining districts.
