English term or phrase: on the losing end of a no-win proposition
This shift has taken its toll on IT personnel and budgets. In many cases, it has also taken a toll on the relationship between IT and the business. With business often blissfully unaware of the net effect of this technology shift, IT is often viewed as a money pit.

As a result, IT organizations are finding themselves {on the losing end of a no-win proposition}. As the business evolves, it requires new business applications. Development provides them, then hands deployment and support over to IT. IT is the last stop on the application railroad, with one route in and no route out.

no-win proposition中本来就没有winning end这一方,这样就更加强调无论如何也是输。
