Microsoft Dynamics has resulted in cuts

In business culture on September 24, 2013 at 19:12

Our boss just sent a mail to all our departments. Microsoft has announced that the present version of Microsoft Dymanics C5 is to be taken off the market and replaced with a new one based on a different development environment. We have used Microsoft Dynamics C5 for almost 10 years and we had just upgraded the system.

Not only do we have to re-program the entire system. We also have to hire new programmers for the job because the employees in our IT-department are not trained in the new system. To make matter worse it cost about DKK 75,000 per employee to be trained to the new system and many of the employee are more than 40 years so they are too old to be upgraded. They will be laid off. The ROI concerning the education is measured to be around 8-9 years and due to their age they are in a higher risk group when it comes to illnesses etc. It is better for the company to hire younger employees and train them. They have to have at least 30 years ahead of them on the job-market to have a chance to be granted courses so they can learn the new system.

I find it awful that Microsoft can do such a thing when we are in the middle of a crisis. I have spoken with both customers and suppliers who use C5 like us. They all face the same challenges and they also agree that the old people have to be laid off replacing them with young people just of out school.

Times are rough right now I think that we have to thank God every single day we are allowed to go to a normal work so we can feed our family.
