IBM Philippines washes it's hands and Questronix puts blame back to Philippine government agency - GSIS, which early this week expressed that it'll file charges due to it's defective pension software.
"If you look at the project, we're really nowhere near it...How can we establish the root cause if we don't have a contractual obligation to them?" IBM said. the giant software company further claims it did not take part of the selection, customization and implementation of the GSIS system.
IBM is the OEM to the solution firm SAP by providing DB2 database software. Questronix, a partner of SAP, was the one who did the customization and systems integration for GSIS.
Questronix on the other hand, countered today that if the pension agency had prioritized it's disaster recovery and implemented proper backup and restore procedures, they would have avoided this big mess right now.
well, looks like the ball is back to GSIS!
