For a while now there is constant conversation that the traditional drivers are obsolete. Do you think that is true or are we just looking at the problem differently. IT organizations have gotten into the habit of striving for:
The impact will vary by organization and industry, but the impact will be felt in any case. Individuals need to think about their business and these technology shifts and get their hands dirty now(if they haven't already). It is not enough to read about it or describe the possibilities in the abstract.
We have the responsibility plant the seeds in the mind the business and the users of the shift underway and its possibilities (and this may require actual demonstration). We may see the potential, but until it resonates in the minds of the business there will be little effective investment or change.
There is little doubt that the CIO needs to have 3rd party management as a core competency. This is expanding beyond the IT space and I wonder if the other CxOs know about this pocket of capability they should draw upon.
