All IT should be "grooming"
This same idea should be used for all IT. There is no such thing as training in IT. You are hired on a contract for a project. There is outsourcing galor. Nothing wrong with that but these have come at the expense of experience . Experienced people are laid off in a downturn and never brought back, instead projects are outsourced. There is some adavantage to using Amazon for your server farm there is also a disadvantage.... You are just like everybody else. The company that trains and retains its people is going to develop the next big thing because they have synergy and long term vision.
