    Well Andrew...
    The story you are telling us is very often to hear
    from a finance person. I mean, they only can
    "undestand" investment if it returns money, and they
    do not understand just the really function of IT as to
    "prevent" breaks down.

    I´m reading a book just now: "The IT Payoff. Measuring
    the business value of Information Technology
    Investments", by Prentice Hall, ISBN 0130650749. It´s
    in english. I recommend you to read it. It´s just a
    "guide" to get the view of the non-IT people. It´s
    helping me a lot to get approvals on IT projects.
    If you time, take a look to it.
