of the sales platform adopted by Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison.&nbsp; He often says 
IT professionals are just going to have to get used to spending less to get 
more done.&nbsp; ICANN should be encouraged to implement technology rather than 
need to hire and retain a phalanx of people in support of its mission.&nbsp;

great job.<br>
i would expand our support for Compliance by also mentioning the need for 
upgrades to their systems.  all those analyses they do for us are basically 
done by hand -- they really need an upgrade to their systems to redirect their 
staff hours back to real compliance work instead of just being clerks.  i'm 
attaching the memo that a gaggle of us working-group participants (IRTP and RAP 
as i recall) sent to the budget folks a couple years ago.  the net result was 
no systems and David Giza getting fired.  but the issue remains.  perhaps even 
more important now that new gTLDs are about to arrive…<br>
