Most of them are industrial engineers, MBA types , marketing analysts and various other kinds of fauna called "industry experts". They are capable of setting up a data source (Oracle or SQL server) and dishing out data (to those who consume the data they produce) through ASP or JSP (That's how I get so much spare time on my hands ) . Dozens of them can code decent C++ and Java. When you allow these kind of life forms to multiply it makes the corporate developer redundant.
