When I worked at Barclays, they were in dispute with IBM over licensing. For the products I was responsible for, they’d discovered we were £20+M under licensed (from before I started). Barclays disputed it so IBM came in with their own tool to do an audit. The tool couldn’t differentiate between the licensable product and the free version that came with tools rolled out to pretty much every desktop and laptop in the tech department. I think they were on month 18 of their audit when I left.
When I worked at BT dealing with the big corporate bills, Barclays were always, always at least one quarterly bill behind on payments. Roughly £3.5m at that time. The above does not surprise me one bit.
