There is an adage in IT that "no one was ever fired for buying IBM," which refers to the pressure management feels to buy the highest-quality software possible when that software determines the success of immensely complicated systems. In other words, if it's impossible for anyone to truly foresee all the possible problems or "bugs" that might come up in a massive IT project (which is the case even in very established corporations e.g. the US elections organizing committees), it is safest to go with the most well-established brand. I wonder if this could partly discount the rating for the IT sector's derived corruption risk.
