Corporate Acronyms

When I was working at a semi-evil multi-national there were a lot of reorganizations. There were about eight people between myself and the CEO. Every time one of them was changed or moved there was another reorganization, and each executive was the head of some group that they got to name.

One of the group names in the chain was ETIS. Acronyms were common. ETIS was Enterprise Technology Infrastructure Services. At various points it was EIS and EDIS. I think it was ETIS for the longest time. Almost every time there was a re-org they would ask for suggestions for a name. I would always suggest Banking Enterprise Software Technology, aka BEST. If you call yourself the BEST, you never need to come up with another name.

I was going through my papers and I found one sheet with some alternative meanings for ETIS:

Elvis Totaled Italian Sportscars

while

Encoding Thousands of Interconnected Servers

thus

Enabling Total Internet Supremacy.

But remember, after the

Excruciating Torture of Infinite Staff meetings,

Eventually There Is Software
