In the first of a two-part series, I take a look at the hype surrounding the consumerization of IT, why I believe that the enterprise is taking on more than it expects and how to prepare for, and hopefully prevent, a potential backlash. 

IT consumerization has generated it's unfair share of hype. The simple appeal of putting the cost burden for device purchase and care on the shoulders (and wallets) of end-users appears to be an elegant solution to what has been a thorny problem. I believe consumerization is more than getting to choose your own device. Failing to anticipate and prepare for the changing rules of IT risks a cost and compliance blowout and an IT backlash as I highlighted in my Top 12 IT Management Trends for 2012 series.

Despite nearly 20 years having passed, I still vividly remember the first time I installed and configured a network management solution at a major enterprise.

Before anyone flames me, I fully understand that HP has a horse in this race and that as an HP employee I imagine readers will interpret a considered biased, but the news of Citrix sponsoring yet-another cloud IaaS stack had me wondering if the industry is collectively losing it's mind faster than a Mark Webber's pit crew change his tyres (yup, we not only talk funny, we spell funny Down Under).

My day job gives me the opportunity to talk about the impact of IT changes to companies of all shapes and sizes. One of the common threads that bind them is the desire to be more like SaaS providers such as Salesforce, Google Docs and the like, and less like the corporate IT department of old.

Is it time to re-boot the role of the CIO, of IT and IT management? Gartner analyst Cameron Haight may have already started you thining along those lines with his recent blog post, the 100 year starship project” where he opines that the last 10 years of IT management were largely incremental gains on concepts laid down 20 years ago.  The gist is that IT management tools and processes have been stretched and patched to the point where a
