English term or phrase: "plumber"
don't think I'm completely out of my head!
It is a telecom text for a USA provider of network provisioning.

What is this "plumber"? I think it cannot be but a jargoon term.
Thank you to everybody!

Italian translation:middleware (il cosiddetto "idraulico")
Explanation:
"Who needs middleware in the 21st century? Middleware seems to be as prosaic as "plumbing". So, who would want to be a software plumber in the e-century? Hopefully, your CIO and lead architects."
Definizione di middleware: a layer of software between the network and the applications that provide services such as identification, authentication, authorization, directories, and security. In today's Internet, applications usually have to provide these services themselves, which leads to competing and incompatible standards. By promoting standardization and interoperability, middleware will make advanced network applications much easier to use.
Il concetto di middleware-idraulico compare anche in alcuni articoli italiani. Come dicono, "il sofware sono i tubi, ma è l'idraulico che paghi".
Ciao!
