Yes I know.Uhhh...it can also be not-as-nice, at times
When I worked for Lloyds Bank my dept asked the IT dept to write them a small DB to assist with our workload.
They basically said 'No can do' and so then they asked me.
I created a DB to that helped my colleagues and especially the flow leaders and increased our productivity.
So much so, my flow leader could not help showing it off to a new manager who was setting up a new site to share the workload.
She mentioned it to the top man, who questioned what the DB was for and then immediately stopped it's use.
Had to go to the IT dept for 'governance'?. It passed, but the IT dept charged my old dept (I'd changed sites by then) £11K
The experts here could have written it in a few days, and it did not update any bank systems.
However I did get a little help from an IT individual, for which I was extremely grateful.
