re: IT's Future: Less Building, More Bundling
All good points to think about, and also probably not surprising at the same time that an increasing number of CIO's aren't coming from a straight tech background, many have a marketing and product development background as well.

re: IT's Future: Less Building, More Bundling
A most excellent analysis, Mr Lundquist. What a paradox is at work here: IT is being forced to give up control of tech decision-making at the line-of-business level, while at the same time it's being called to assert more in the areas of security, compliance, and reliability. Ouch. Going to be tough for lots of CIOs and IT departments who aren't willing to adapt to what is a subtle, yet significant, change in roles. But you're right to be hopeful, too. I heard some IT mavericks speak recently and they all railed as much against the old IT stringencies as I'm sure many a biz user has.
