We've avoided IT falling under control of the bean counters, where I
work.  If that ever changes: I'm outta here.

On the other side of the coin, I was a Group Management/Systems
accountant in a publicly-quoted IT company some years ago.
We had J D Edwards ERM system running on AIX. (And I have a few stories
about THAT as well!)
The Group Finance Department wanted a reporting tool to ensure integrity
of reporting.
We did some research and eventually purchased Hyperion - an
industry-standard reporting tool.
The IT dept refused to install it, saying they hadn't been "consulted".
One example of the organisation existing for the IT dept's benefit,
rather than the other way round! ;-)
