Why?
Why did I tell you this?
Because:
 Everything we do relates to the fulfilment of our mission
 Everything we develop relates to the fulfilment of our mission
 Everything we purchase relates to the fulfilment of our mission
We do not purchase or develop technology for technology’s sake.
We purchase or develop technologies to solve a problem in fulfilling
our mission.
