...or 'the Cloud' as if that resolves any of the fundamental issues.

But to comment on your main point, and the various despairing responses 
to it -- all of which square up with my own limited public and charity 
sector experience of IT imbecility:

How about an open best practice site? Am I being hopelessly naive? 
(probably) but if one could start with some freely available guidance 
documentation, crowd sourced so it was doable before the heat death of 
the universe, and signed off/approved by people who know their IT?

So that people could be pointed to it?

Hopelessly idealistic as well I'm sure... but could it be done?
